Overview: Complications

Complications: Notes From The Life Of A Young Surgeon, written by Atul Gawande describes a series of experiences in the professional lives of doctors as well as surgeons. The work reveals that the medical science has its own failings. Spellbinding occasions when decisions have to be made, often in a matter of a fraction of a second, within the operation theatre, bring to light a different facet of the entire medical profession. The events depicted in this work are categorized into three parts: mystery, fallibility, and uncertainty.

In fallibility, the author cites a few examples to establish that doctors are also human, prone to make mistakes which sometimes can cost an individual�s life. In mystery Dr.Gawande narrates certain specific conditions that offer no rational scientific explanation. The book also reveals the fact that a doctor/surgeon arrives at a decision that is based on his/her individual experience, and not essentially on scientific reasoning.

Complications: Notes From The Life Of A Young Surgeon presents several remarkable case studies. One case in particular talks about a patient with a red patch on her leg. The doctor should figure out if the condition is flesh consuming bacteria. A TV news anchor has a rather serious problem of blushing that hinders her career. Is surgery the last resort for her? The work is indeed a page-turner as it unfurls the subtler points of all that happens in the mind of a doctor, as he/she deals with a patient.

Other best- selling books by the author are The Checklist Manifesto, Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance. You can buy online. This paperback book is listed with the ISBN number of ISBN-13 978-0143028451 ISBN-10 0143028456.
