For most people, having surgery is a confounding, uncomfortable, and even fearful experience. In Secrets and Lies from the Operating Room, Dr. Jean-Paul Brutus separates fact from fallacy and tells you everything you need to know about the world of surgeons.
In a light-hearted tone, and in Q&A format, Dr. Brutus pulls back the curtain and shares personal and poignant stories, humor, and trivia, as well as tips for both patients and surgeons alike on how to connect with each other—not as the next operation but as fellow human beings.
Some may say that surgeons are just as unemotional or uncaring as robots. But Dr. Brutus—a leading plastic surgeon specializing in minimally invasive hand surgery—challenges that notion and shows the humanity behind the mask.
“In a friendly tone, Dr. Brutus thoroughly reveals all aspects of a surgeon’s life and what readers can expect, whether they are surgeon wannabes or surgical candidates, past or future.” —Dr. Roy A. Meals, author of Bones: Inside and Out
Profits from the sale of the book will be donated to the Welcome Hall Mission, a Montreal-based organization that helps families in need, at-risk mothers and youth, and those experiencing homelessness.
