The other day one of my dear patients asked me a question before getting into a procedure-
DOCTOR WHY DO YOU CONSIDER SURGERY AS AN ART?
Because the smell of spirit is sweeter than perfume to me,
Because my ot scrubs feel more fashionable to me than any designer clothes,
Because the clicking sound of a needle holder is music to my ears,
Because proportions and symmetry cannot be more important than in surgery,
Because when I walk into a hospital I feel as calm as I would in a temple,
Because when I operate I get into a zone deeper than meditation,
Because I can convert discomfort into comfort with a few gentle strokes,
Because I know that I can erase the lines of worry and make one smile,
Because I can make a connection with my fellow beings on a much deeper level than any other profession,
Because although I may strive for success everytime, I have to accept failure too at times,
And that is why surgery is an art and not just a profession my friend!!
