Behind The Mask

Behind the Mask,
The Mystique of Surgery and the Surgeons who Perform Them

Decisions, Trust, Tension and …Leeches

Behind the Mask: The Mystique of Surgery and the Surgeons who perform them explores a world of operating rooms, scrub suits, scalpels and hope as Dr. David Gelber provides a peek into the rarely seen world of surgery. The innermost thoughts of the surgeons who confront disease and trauma on a daily basis are revealed as they care for the sick and injured at any and all hours, making split second life and death decisions.

The ever evolving practice of General Surgery is presented; from common conditions such as appendicitis to the complexities of the gravely ill septic patient. Preoperative considerations, intraoperative procedures, post operative occurrences, the interaction of surgeon and patient are examined; even the modern day role of leeches is explained.
