Confessions of a Surgeon

The Good, the Bad, and the Complicated...Life Behind the O.R. Doors

Este libro se puede descargar y leer en iBooks desde tu Mac o dispositivo iOS.


As an active surgeon and former department chairman, Dr. Paul A. Ruggieri has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of his profession. In Confessions of a Surgeon, he pushes open the doors of the O.R. and reveals the inscrutable place where lives are improved, saved, and sometimes lost. He shares the successes, failures, remarkable advances, and camaraderie that make it exciting. He uncovers the truth about the abusive, exhaustive training and the arduous devotion of his old-school education. He explores the twenty-four-hour challenges that come from patients and their loved ones; the ethics of saving the lives of repugnant criminals; the hot-button issues of healthcare, lawsuits, and reimbursements; and the true cost of running a private practice. And he explains the influence of the "white coat code of silence" and why patients may never know what really transpires during surgery. Ultimately, Dr. Ruggieri lays bare an occupation that to most is as mysterious and unfamiliar as it is misunderstood. His account is passionate, illuminating, and often shocking-an eye-opening, never- before-seen look at real life, and death, in the O.R.

Confessions of a Surgeon

This book is an honest look at the life of a surgeon and how modern healthcare policy affects the role of surgeons in healthcare. Sometimes the author comes across as whiney and inflexible to the paradigm shifts occurring in twenty first century medicine. Sometimes the author pines for the "good old days" where he could haze newbie surgeons in the same manner he was hazed by his superiors. These shortcomings aside, the book should be ready every pre-med student as they "count the cost" of training for a career as physicians and surgeons.

Confessions of a Surgeon

In addition to interesting stories of his patients, the author explains clearly in detail some of the recent changes in the medical profession. Why your doctor might not take care of you in the hospital, but instead turn you over the care of a "hospitalist".
Why your doctor might decide not to accept patients on Medicare. Why the increasing regulations meant to reduce surgical errors are also complicating medical procedures unnecessarily. Why there may not be enough surgeons in a few years.
Very clearly explained and food for thought.

We are fragile

Being reminded of our fragility would have been entertaining in my 20's. In my 40's it's actually a bit scary. This book also reminds us that we're not very complicated and the tools we (still) rely on are a best blunt. Regulations will eventually cause more deaths than it intends. Jim Gioiosa
