Les origines de notre médecine

Documentary series

Lobotomies, unmodified electroshock therapy, ice water baths, amputations using a hand saw, gruesome births, nightmarish tools used to straighten or pull teeth—nothing was spared for earlier generations living in an era where medicine was constantly changing.

Whether or not you’re dreading your next trip to the doctor, the fortunate reality is that medicine has come a long way over the last few centuries. Les origines de notre médecine explores the early days of medicine, documenting the evolution of the medical field over time. This insightful documentary series also leaves audiences wondering: What will future generations think about the medical treatments of today?
