From 1987 to 1990, author Dr. Richard Moss traveled extensively through Asia while working as a cancer surgeon in the countries of Thailand, Nepal, India and Bangladesh. In his autobiography, “A Surgeon’s Odyssey” (published by Archway Press), Moss describes the adventures and challenges he encountered while attending to patients struggling with cancer in Asia.

More than just a medical memoir, Moss shares his story that includes insights into life and other nations, cultures and religions as well as his journey through Malaysia, Singapore and the Indonesian archipelago. Moss shares the medical side of operating and treating patients in third-world conditions while also telling of the people he met and the cultures he experienced.

Moss states that his work was voluntary, however the payoff was in the rich, fascinating and often bizarre experiences he had both as a surgeon and wanderer.
