    They all have to do their first operation sometime. The real worry would be if he were in there alone.

    I think the real worry is that the patient is awake while the surgeon is coming at him with a scalpel.

    Well, I found out a while back why the surgeons all wear those masks. It’s so you won’t know who to sue…

    I’ve heard it said that beginning surgeons practice on cadavers. Whether that is true or not, I don’t know.

    Most likely this is one of the few to have signed up for ObamaCare. Good Luck!

    There is a story about a guy who was told by a surgeon that an operation would cost him $10,000. When asked if he could do it any cheaper, the surgeon replied, “Certainly, for $10,000 I use my new instruments and my old assistants. For $5,000 I can do it with my old instruments and my new assistants!”

    Which is highly illegal.

    you have to be awake for many types of brain surgery, so they can see how you react when they poke at it.
