"Neurosurgeon Henry Marsh reveals the fierce joy of operating, the profoundly moving triumphs, the harrowing disasters, the haunting regrets, and the moments of black humor that characterize a brain surgeon's life. If you believe that brain surgery is a precise and exquisite craft, practiced by calm and detached surgeons, this ... brutally honest account will make you think again"--Amazon.com.… (mehr)

    What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine von Danielle Ofri (fountainoverflows)
    fountainoverflows: While Marsh's book is ostensibly a collection of stories about experiences with neurosurgery patients, there is a great deal to be gleaned about doctors'--and, in particular, surgeons' emotional states, especially when the diagnosis is very grim.… (mehr)

一開始當作(又一本)神外故事會看,但中段開始基調逐漸改變,作者開心見誠地談論自己的失敗,剖析自己遇到無法救治的病人或者手術失敗的病例時的所思所想,還反覆吐槽NHS管理得如何官僚死板,讓普通人一窺醫生這一職業背後的壓力和煩惱。 印象比較深刻的章節,一是作者自述其公學牛津drop out gap完回校再轉行的游刃有餘白人中產人生(……),二是官僚制度無論在蘇聯解體後的烏克蘭還是在倫敦都死死把控住治病救人的醫院,三是作者反思自己年輕時因自大而手術失敗、使病人成爲植物人,印象最爲深刻的四則是作者照料臨終母親、以及散見於各章節的對死亡的思考。看完很强烈的一個感受是,in Cantonese,人命真係好化學…… ( )

Written by a neurosurgeon who works in the NHS- so a lot of details about the system and management were a bit different than what I’m used to, but all the same in a way- frustrations caused by things out of his control, for example. Like sending away for a test while the patient is waiting for their operation and something happens so the test never comes so the procedure gets delayed to the next day- resulting in a very upset patient of course. The surgeon was usually kind and apologetic, but at the same time he often came across as arrogant or dismissive, as when he waved aside someone’s concerns that they woke up from surgery with huge bruises on the face (doctor knew it would go away quickly, patient was very alarmed). The book is full of individual stories about different cancers and injuries he treated- sometimes with descriptive details on how the procedures are performed, other times with more about the patients as people, or the circumstances surrounding the surgery, or how the surgeon felt himself about it all. The tricky balance he had to keep between caution and confidence, to do such delicate and dangerous things inside people’s heads. Some of the stories have good endings, some are terribly tragic, and occasionally there’s one where he never hears of the patient again. As many of the people seeking treatment (or their families) were elderly suffering from brain tumors, there’s also things about end-of-life care and decisions- brought to mind Being Mortal. And purely from the descriptions of the physical art and skill, I was reminded of Mortal Lessons. I also had in mind the few Oliver Sacks books I’ve read- when Marsh explained how specific damage to the brain would affect certain parts of the body or abilities. I think what struck me most about this account, is how acutely honest the surgeon was about his mistakes. It’s rather terrifying to think that if you need brain surgery done, it is, after all, another human performing the operation.

This was impossible to put down — lots of detailed stories about both neurosurgery and the author’s life and career as a consultant neurosurgeon in the NHS, volunteer in Ukraine, and patient. ( )

There is an aura around the words "Heart Surgery" and "Brain Surgery". Henry Marsh takes us inside the field of Neurosurgery and gives us the story of doctor and patient. An excellent and well written book. ( )

As a young doctor just starting out, Henry Marsh watched a neurosurgeon operate on a woman’s brain, going after a dangerous aneurysm that could rupture and kill her. This kind of surgery — taking place several inches inside the patient’s head — was perilous, and often compared, as he writes in his riveting new memoir, to bomb disposal work, “though the bravery required is of a different kind as it is the patient’s life that is at risk and not the surgeon’s.”

There was “the chase,” as the surgeon stalked his prey deep within the brain, then “the climax as he caught the aneurysm, trapped it, and obliterated it with a glittering, spring-loaded titanium clip, saving the patient’s life.” More than that, Dr. Marsh goes on, “the operation involved the brain, the mysterious substrate of all thought and feeling, of all that was important in human life — a mystery, it seemed to me, as great as the stars at night and the universe around us. The operation was elegant, delicate, dangerous and full of profound meaning. What could be finer, I thought, than to be a neurosurgeon?”

Dr. Marsh would become one of Britain’s foremost neurosurgeons, and in this unflinching book, “Do No Harm,” he gives us an extraordinarily intimate, compassionate and sometimes frightening understanding of his vocation. . . . .
