Description
"Tumors, injuries, natural malformations -- there is almost no such thing as a non-emergency brain surgery when it comes to kids. For a pediatric neurosurgeon working in the medical minefield of the brain -- in which every millimeter in every direction governs something that makes us essentially human -- every day presents the challenge, the opportunity, to give a new lease on life to a child for whom nothing is yet determined and all possibilities still exist. In All That Moves Us, Dr. Jay Wellons pulls back the curtain to reveal the profoundly moving triumphs, harrowing mistakes, and haunting close calls that characterize the life of a pediatric neurosurgeon, bringing the high-stakes drama of the OR to life with astonishing candor and honest compassion. Reflecting on lessons learned over eighteen years and five thousand operations completed on some of the most vulnerable and precious among us, Wellons recounts with gripping detail the moments that have shaped him as a doctor, as a parent, and as the only hope for countless patients whose young lives are in his hands. Wellons shares his early days as a medical student and what it's like to treat the brave children he meets the threshold of life and death. From the little boy who arrived in Wellons's operating room with a gunshot wound to the head, to sewing the nerves of a newborn back together using suture as fine as human hair and prepping to take a brain tumor out of a teenage cheerleader, All That Moves Us is an unforgettable portrait of the countless human dramas that take place in a busy modern hospital, and what they can teach you about how to live life outside of it." --,Provided by publisher.
