If you’ve ever been directly involved in the medical community, you know that the surgeons are the mystery men (or women). There’s a real sense of awe for those who have dedicated their lives and careers to cutting into human flesh and rearranging what they find underneath. Why do they do what they do? What makes them tick? How the heck can they handle that? What happens when surgery takes all day? When do you eat? Or go to the bathroom? The questions we have for and about surgeons are endless.
Today’s blogger is a general surgeon. Sid Schwab blogs about his life as a surgeon and attempts (successfully, I might add) to educate, inform, and entertain his readers with his stories at Surgeonsblog. He’s even written a book. Can you say multi-talented?
I usually choose a few posts to highlight and link directly, but Sid’s done that for me with his section entitled, Sampler. He has sampler categories for patients, diseases, the OR, and the mind of a surgeon, among others.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and your mouth will hang open in amazement (real life shock and awe, people!) as you read some of the stories Sid tells from his personal experiences.
