Dr. Lee is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a senior member of the American Association for Thoracic Surgery, and is currently a consultant in cardiac surgery for the Central Complaint Unit of the Medical Board of California.Review:
Written by a very experienced cardiac surgeon...one can learn a great deal from reading this book because the incidents described come from a lifetime in the practice of cardiac surgery. A surgeon will accumulate this level of experience only after many, many years - yet here it all is, within these pages, for everyone to benefit. The author is to be congratulated upon his imaginative production. The book is certainly worth buying.
