Readers of psychological novels will enjoy "The Neurosurgeon," and the journey of a brain surgeon through the depths of addiction.
This is a book of fiction written by a neurosurgeon. Not only the general reading public but also patients and their addiction therapists will find this psychological novel a worthwhile read. "The Neurosurgeon" will appeal to nurses, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, psychiatrists, practitioners of addiction research and therapy, physicians in both medicine and surgery, alcoholics, addicts and their families. "The Neurosurgeon" is especially relevant for doctors and nurses having succumbed to the hidden tentacles of addiction, including alcohol, methamphetamine, Quaalude, and benzodiazepines.
This psychological novel, a mind-bending thriller, explores the inner workings of a brain surgeon, Doctor Ira Stone, who struggles with multiple demons. He is charged with repairing other people's brains while his own mind is rapidly torn asunder when Stephanie DeLeon, a new and beautiful nurse scrubs in with him. He is ripped apart by his personal indiscretions in light of his professional obligation to do no harm.
After the death of his brother, Ira finds himself drinking more and more frequently. At first it is in the evening, which he justifies by claiming, "I work so hard and long that I deserve some whiskey to settle my nerves." But his opiate centers like what they are tasting and want more. His brain will not rest until these nerve cells are satisfied. And then he meets Steffi DeLeon.
This compelling story of adultery, addiction, and a stressful recovery is expertly interwoven with meticulously researched medical vignettes. The sequences depicting surgery are particularly moving not only in their accuracy but also in the way the careful, regimented operations contradict the manner in which the surgeon lives outside of the operating room.
