Cypriot doctor Constantinos Simillis who lives and works in the UK will feature in an episode of the BBC2 documentary Surgeons: At The Edge Of Life.

The fifth season, episode two, is to premiere on Wednesday at 9pm UK time, with Simillis’ family proud that he can raise awareness on issues such as the suffering of patients with bowel conditions – “as in Cyprus such conditions tend to still be a social taboo”.

The episode follows the colorectal team at Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge UK, led by Simillis who is a permanent consultant colorectal and general surgeon. It will feature a 39-year-old man who has had severe Crohn’s disease since he was a teenager with devastating effects on his quality of life.
