Informative, irreverent, poignant and very funny....There has always been an air of mystery about the surgeon....The Making of a Surgeon remedies all that and then some. It takes us into the operating suite, stands us over the anesthesized patient, almost hands us the scalpel.

It takes us into the operating suite, stands us over the anesthesized patient, almost hands us the scalpel.
