9781741668445: Making the Cut

In this compelling and beautifully written memoir, Mohamed Khadra recounts stories from his life as a surgeon, from the grueling years of training to the debilitating sleepless nights on call. He looks back at the doctors and patients who shaped his career; at the endless stream of humanity—courageous, pitiful, admirable, and dislikable—who passed under his knife; and at the shattered lives of doctors defeated by the stresses of the job. This dramatic account of a surgical life shows what happens when extraordinary events overtake everyday lives.

Book Description Random House Australia, Australia, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this compelling and beautifully written impressionistic memoir, Mohamed Khadra recounts stories from his life as a surgeon, from the gruelling years of training to the debilitating sleepless nights on call. To be a surgeon is to stand, without flinching, in the sea of human suffering and use one s entire resource of knowledge, skill and intelligence to battle it. An intern makes his first cut and is ridiculed by his tutor. An old woman is brought back to life against her will, only for the unexpected to strike a week later. A notorious surgeon is driven crazy by a massive brain tumour. The mother of a leukemia-ridden child is driven to desperation. He looks back at the doctors and patients who shaped his career; at the endless stream of humanity - courageous, pitiful, admirable and dislikable - who passed under his knife, as he recalls shocking tales of mistakes in theatre and the shattered lives of doctors defeated by the stresses of the job. Documenting the damaging politics in our healthcare system, the soul-destroying choices made for patients and the misplaced hope so common in the face of death, his dramatic account of a surgical life shows what happens when extr.
