ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
When Daniel Fulkerson, MD entered medical school, he pictured neurosurgery as a serious business that demanded precision, a harsh attitude and a complete absence of fun. But after falling backwards into the specialty, Fulkerson found neurosurgery to be a field filled with joy, sadness, a little humor and courageous and inspiring patients. In “Nothing Good Happens at … The Baby Hospital: The Strange, Silly World of Pediatric Brain Surgery” (published by Archway Publishing in December of 2016), he shares an engaging glimpse into a world on the other side of the lab coat where struggles, trepidations and doubts surround lifesaving challenges.
Set for a new marketing campaign, the book is an honest and compelling retelling of Fulkerson’s training and practice as a pediatric brain surgeon. It is meant to entertain and educate and will hopefully makes readers laugh, cry and ponder some of the “big picture” questions of life and death.
“The burnout rate and suicide rate in physicians is an underreported epidemic,” Fulkerson says. “This book highlights the emotions of medicine – the joys and severe lows. Health care is a relevant issue in the United States and this book highlights some of the challenges faced by surgeons and patients.”
“Medicine is ultimately about relationships- some good and some bad. Through this book, I would like readers to experience the roller coaster of emotions that a pediatric neurosurgeon faces every day.”
