THORACIC PARK (Musings of a Heart Surgeon)
by Dr. A. Sampath Kumar
This book describes in some detail the human side of cardiac surgical practice. It recounts its moral, social, financial and other constraints which the suffering patients face and how the doctorpatient relationship can help them in all these areas. Some of these stories are heart breaking while you may find some hilarious. In any case all are true stories and the identity of the patients has been safeguarded. It is hoped that you will enjoy reading these stories.
