Our current healthcare system is sick, and the cure is simple: We need to bring compassion back to healthcare. In The Cutting Edge of Compassion, board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Barry Rose reflects on how physicians and patients can create the best healing outcomes by appreciating personality differences, addressing fear, being open to Eastern and Western medical philosophies, and working together to address insurance, legal, and pharmaceutical obstacles to optimal care.
Rose presents a compassionate vision for healthcare where health professionals and patients work together to heal. The Cutting Edge of Compassion will open your eyes and your heart and reveal that compassionate healthcare is possible when patients and health professionals work together to achieve it.
Dr. Barry Rose is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and chief of orthopedic surgery and surgical division head for the Alameda division of the Palo Alto Foundation Medical Group, one of the largest multi-specialty groups in California. He resides in San Francisco with his wife Rose.
