Described by one surgeon as ?oul-crushing, diamond-making stress,?surgery on congenital heart defects is arguably the most difficult of all surgical specialties. Drawing back the hospital curtain for a unique and captivating look at the extraordinary skill and dangerous politics of critical surgery in a pediatric heart center, Michael Ruhlman focuses on the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, where a team of medical specialists?ed by idiosyncratic virtuoso Dr. Roger Mee?ork on the edge of disaster on a daily basis. Walk on Wateroffers a rare and dramatic glimpse into a world where the health of innocent children and the hopes of white-knuckled families rest in the hands of all-too-human doctors.
