I can't remember the exact phrasing but I was struck by an article I read that said up until the late 1800s or so (maybe?), a doctor had as much chance of killing you as saving you. I can't imagine what 1900 must've been like. Though it sounds fascinating, I'm not sure I could handle a show like that.

The first scene they were in the operating room with a patient with placenta previa a pregnancy situation so they were attempting a C section. Lots cutting leash with blood and clamps . Gripping . I couldn't watch
Later at the end they performed a colon resection with the patients intestines out on his stomach so the could reattach them.
My guess is since this was the first episode these were inserted for shock value and tat subsequent episodes will be more about the hospital politics with the new black surgeon. And other social issues we are concerned about today so they put them into the period show.
Clive Owen makes a hard core doctor not interested in politically issues we so embrace a hundred years later
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
