A Surgeon's World is a biographical account of Dr. William Nolen's personal surgical practice after his residency at Bellview Hospital in NYC. It is a remarkable book - one that I've read and reread over the years. The account of his practice is a realistic look of what a skilled surgeon faces when practicing the trade. The emotional highs and lows, desperate situations that bring both joy and sadness, the need to always be available to help others (he was the only surgeon in a group of medical men) and the day-to-day routine of surgical practice in a smaller community kept him very busy. Dr. Nolen loved his practice and his patients. There are several newer books that look at the practice of surgery in the 21st century but all surgeons - and physicians - have as their same goal the best medical care that they can give.
Got this for my mother. She was raised and friends with Williams father. She was pleased with the honesty of William A. Nolen. For a person that hates to read books, she did read it all.
excellent! thumb's up!
book was just good as i expected
Admittedly this book is out of date. The author writes about his surgical career during the 1960's and early 70's. Moreover, his career would be somewhat unusual today - a surgeon working in a GP group practice in a rural town of 5,000. That said, this is an entertaining read.
The author writes with a very personal voice letting you know all about how he got to his position and his views on many topics. But they are stated in an understated way that uses medical examples along the way. I enjoyed his writing style and feel most of the book was full of useful information for a budding MD.
