Product Description

Mr Jay Jayamohan BSc, MBBS (London), FRCS (Surgical Neurology) is a Consultant Paediatric Neurosurgeon at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, and an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Oxford. He has been the star of two highly acclaimed BBC fly-on-the-wall series following the work of neurosurgeons. His work breaks down into three primary areas: Paediatric Neurosurgery – tackling tumours and congenital problems in children; Craniofacial Reconstruction – working with a plastic surgeon to give babies or victims of accidents a shot at a normal life; Expert Witness – employed by the courts to help solve head related crimes or provide the case for the defence.<p><b><i>‘There are two ways to open a child’s head. The pretty way and the quick way. Usually I shave the hair, use a scalpel to nick the skin then apply an electrocautery device to burn down to bone level. It’s a slow, precise method and it leaves almost no scarring. But it takes time. Time, the interminable single note of the heart monitor reminds me, I don’t have.’</i></b><br><b><i>___________</i></b><br><br><b>‘Extraordinary’ – <i>The Times</i></b><br><b>‘Compelling’ – <i>The Daily Mail</i></b><br><b>‘An inspirational book written by a truly remarkable man’ – Dr Amanda Brown, author of <i>The Prison Doctor</i></b><br><b><i>___________</i></b><br><br>Jay Jayamohan makes<b> life and death decisions</b> on a daily basis.
