Bekenntnisse eines Hirnchirurgen Wie arbeitet ein Hirnchirurg? Wie fühlt es sich an, in das Organ zu schneiden, mit dem Menschen denken und träumen? Wie geht man damit um, wenn das Leben eines Patienten von der eigenen Heilkunst abhängt? Und wie, wenn man scheitert? Mehr noch als in anderen Bereichen der Medizin ist es in der Hirnchirurgie so gut wie unmöglich, nie einem Patienten zu schaden, denn Operationen am Innersten des Menschen sind immer mit unkalkulierbaren Risiken verbunden. Henry Marsh, einer der besten Neurochirurgen Großbritanniens, erzählt beeindruckend offen, selbstkritisch und humorvoll von den Ausnahmesituationen, die seinen Arbeitsalltag ausmachen. Seine Geschichten handeln vom Heilen und Helfen, vom Hoffen und Scheitern, von fatalen Fehlern und von der Schwierigkeit, die richtige Entscheidung zu treffen.
