There are two kinds of people: those that are pre-op and those that are post-op, and since I'm guessing you are one or the other, that's why you need to read my book. It tells what it's like to become and to be a surgeon, about which I just happen know a thing or two. You'll learn some things, and have fun doing it.


Background Information

I grew up and practiced surgery in the Pacific Northwest, having gone to college and med school on the East Coast. I began writing after I (mostly) retired, when, for the first time in a few decades, I had the time to do it. My book, Cutting Remarks; Insights and Recollections of a surgeon began as a way to recall and reflect on having become a surgeon. It evolved into something more: a book aimed at the lay reader with the goal of entertaining and enlightening, bringing the reader into the operating room in ways not previously done by surgeon-writers. Demystifying. I made it deliberately graphic in parts, softened with humor and reflection. Based on comments from readers, I can say -- modestly, humbly, and not without a modicum of self-delusion? -- that I seem to have achieved the aim.

Accomplishments


I was in the USAF medical corps and spent a year in Vietnam, stationed at Danang, known to us as "rocket city." One of the better aimed rockets led to my getting a Purple Heart.

I've managed to stay married for 35 years, and to have helped in the production of a son, long since flown from the coop.

I patiently await writing honors.
