Availability: Out Of Stock

Complications: Notes From The Life Of A Young Surgeon narrates the experiences of doctors and surgeons, and proves that medicine as a science, also has it shortcomings. Gripping stories of decisions that have to be made in split seconds in the operation theatre, will reveal a different side of the medical profession. The incidents in the book are categorised into three sections, fallibility, mystery, and uncertainty. While talking of fallibility, the book cites examples of how doctors are human too, and they are equally prone to mistakes. On some occasions, these mistakes could also cost a person’s life. The section on mystery talks of certain conditions for which there is no sound scientific explanation. These things still occur, and the author has provided real-life examples to be looked into. Symptoms like blushing or nausea are not uncommon, yet difficult to understand why it happens. Complications: Notes From The Life Of A Young Surgeon also deals with the fact that a doctor or surgeon makes a decision based on his or her personal experience, and not necessarily on scientific facts. Many interesting case studies are discussed in this book. One case describes a patient having a red patch on her leg. The doctor needs to figure whether it is actually a flesh eating bacteria or not. Another case deals with a news anchor who has a serious case of blushing, which hampers her career. Is surgery the only way to cure her? This book is a page-turner and unravels the finer points of what goes on in a doctor’s mind.
