What we can learn from an orthopedic surgeon who publishes a novel 

“Transections, eviscerations, exsanguinations, amputations, decapitations, disembowelments, penetrations, disarticulations, emasculations, enucleations, incinerations—these things he has seen. But of late he chooses to see only the glimmering vials. His vision fades and darkens as he draws closer to the OR where the ultimate reality lies prepped, draped, framed, and illuminated, waiting for the surgeon to fix it all, to make sense of it all.

Michael J. Collins is an orthopedic surgeon and author of All Bleeding Stops. He can be reached on Twitter @mjcollinsmd.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Exposure in surgery is everything.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/09/exposure-in-surgery-is-everything.html)
