Josh was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, malignant melanoma, behind his eye. The operation to remove the tumour and stop it spreading meant he lost not only his eye, but a large portion of his eye-socket, cheek and jaw. Now, several reconstructive procedures later, surgeons have rebuilt his face using skin from his thigh, bone from his shoulder and dental implants.

Dr Christian meets Josh, before, during and after his most recent operation by a team including Saving Faces founder Professor Iain Hutchison.
