An ill surgeon (Barry Sullivan) resists retirement. Melodrama abounds in the hospital corridors when an ailing surgeon goes to extremes covering up his loss of touch. Barry Sullivan guests as the troubled medic and he's a pro who can deliver the proper histrionics for such a role. Sullivan's surgeon has carefully trained a lady resident to do his intricate operations, and he raises the roof when Doc Gannon becomes suspicious. The teaming of Sullivan and Chad Everett will hold the ladies.
