A reporter follows a plastic surgeon around and describes various operations, along with how operating rooms work and other topics. It's very interesting. Besides cosmetic surgeries, this guy treats burn patients; does breast reconstructions; and for one patient who had a bad electric burn that destroyed a leg muscle, transplants an abdominal muscle to the guy's leg. A few months later he's able to walk again.

It's from 1989 so it's somewhat dated - one chapter is about the challenges of this new disease, AIDS - should doctors use universal precautions, or is that overkill? The last part of the book is about the possibility of transplanting a cadaver hand to a patient who's lost one, but that's not possible yet. ( )
