A memoir from one of Australia's top surgeons. Have you ever wondered what surgeons really discuss in the operating theatre? How do they cope with the long, sleepless nights of being on call and what effect does the fatigue have on their ability to operate? How do doctors persuade patients to go on clinical trials and how are they rewarded for doing so? How effective are nurses in our present system of healthcare? And how often do surgeons really screw up? In this narrative, Mohamed Khadra describes his own career moving up the hospital ranks and reveals the cruel superiors, devastating politics and soul-destroying choices made on behalf of patients that he experienced along the way. Ultimately he shows with breathtaking sensitivity what happens when extraordinary events overtake everyday lives including, even, his own.
