Format: Hardcover
Ably written by a retired Paediatric Surgeon of international repute, Irish Surgeons and Surgery in the twenthieth century is a fascinating glimpse into the lives and characters of Surgeons working in the island of Ireland in the twentieth century. The unattributable quotes at the end of the book only serves to remind the reader that these professionals were after all only human. A must read for anyone interested in Irish medical history.
