Surgeon Scientist

New or Used: $35.95
Graham Hill is a surgeon, university professor and researcher who has worked in hospitals and teaching institutions in New Zealand, Indonesia, the UK and the US. His work on the response of the human body to major surgery has helped doctors improve likely outcomes for patients all over the world. This book is like a scientific detective story, as Professor Hill and the teams he has worked with piece together the story of how bodies heal, one painstaking step at a time. Each piece of research they do brings more questions - patients lose weight following surgery - what is the nature of this weight loss? Why does the body lose so much protein after surgery? Can it be replaced using supplements? Does it help if the patient has been well nourished before surgery? Professor Hill writes with tremendous emapathy for his patients, and makes his highly technical work accessible to interested readers.
