I want to inform people about what they need to know if facing surgery, as well as provide them with valuable information about the changing nature of the surgical mission.
St. Louis (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
With 37 years of surgical experience, author Curtis M. Chaudoin felt compelled to share his past experiences and current beliefs about surgical corporations, hospitals and surgeons in general. "Secrets from the Operating Room: My Experiences, Observations, and Reflections as a Surgical Salesman" (published by iUniverse) is his attempt to do just that, as well as give readers specific information about what to do to help insure a successful procedural outcome.
Readers join Chaudoin as he takes them behind the doors of the operating room. He allows them to see a candid, up-close and personal look at what really happens inside the secretive surgical world. As readers peruse through his detailed descriptions and interesting snippets about surgeon life, they are also informed about what they can do, themselves, if facing surgery in the future. "I want to inform people about what they need to know if facing surgery, as well as provide them with valuable information about the changing nature of the surgical mission," he states.
He does not stop there though. He also shows readers the dark side of surgery, the side of greed. "My book also discusses the greed and avarice that is ingrained in the surgical arena," he says, "sometimes at the expense and safety of surgical patients."
An excerpt from "Secrets from the Operation Room":
"You visit your doctor. It may be for a regular appointment. It may be that you have not been feeling well, and you have some persistent symptoms. You tell him or her how you have been feeling and about any unusual conditions. During an examination, your doctor tells you that he or she needs to run some tests. You ask why. Your doctor says that they are simply routine and not to worry. You suddenly feel flush, and anxiety starts to encompass you. I know the feeling. I have been through this before. And so have millions of people. It is not time to panic. It is time to go to work."
