Cutting Remarks: Insights and Recollections of a Surgeon by Sidney M. Schwab MD

A surgeon can kill you...and youll sleep right through it. The most dramatic--and seemingly glamorous--of medical fields, surgery captivates the publics imagination. Written for inquisitive laymen as well as anyone in the medical profession, this fascinating first-person account documents the career of one of Americas top surgeons. Readers accompany Sidney Schwab through medical school at Case Western Reserve University; an internship; junior and senior residencies (with a detour to Vietnam, where he won a Purple Heart); and finally his chief residency years in San Francisco. With humor and poignancy--and sometimes graphic detail--Schwab recalls memorable surgeries, surgeons, and patients. He takes care to explain, in understandable and interesting fashion, a variety of diseases, medical issues, and surgical techniques. More than just a memoir, Cutting Remarks offers a compelling look at how trauma and surgery are handled at a major hospital, and provides valuable insight into a surgeons relationship with both peers and patients.
