summary ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Earl Owen free read Under the Microscope 106 Es Whilst lying in bed alone in a dark basement room in the hospital he decided he would grow up to be the a new kind of surgeon one who would deal delicately and carefully with birth defects and would communicate sensitively with patients When he was discharged from the hospital he took up piano lessons and discovered he was a talented musician As he came out of his teens he had to decide whether to pursue a career as a concert pianist or a surgeonTo say this man is a high achiever barely touches on his gifts and talents He was one of the earliest most inventive and enterprising pioneers of microsurgery; he designed instruments and microscopes for his operati. After reading this fascinating autobiography of the remarkable Australian microsurgery pioneer Earl Owen I looked for further information about him on Wikipedia and was amazed to not find an entry Had he been a sportsman or a politician he would be a household name however I had never heard of him beforeBorn into a family of doctors in 1933 his early life led to his desire to become a caring doctor who specialised in treating children Born with a huge tumour a hemangioma on his leg that no one knew how to treat in the 1930s so they blasted it with their new X ray machine damaging the skin and bone and causing lifelong problems for Earl These days we know it is benign and would have regressed n its own When he was eleven a slow growing tumour caused by the earlier excessive radiation caused his bone to shatter and he subseuently spent the better part of a year in hospital in traction isolated in a small dark basement room undergoing one failed operation after another It was this experience where he was lonely and bored and no one explained what was happening to him that made him decide to become a better type of doctorAfter his medical degree at the University of Sydney Owen went on to advanced surgical training at London s famous Greater Ormond St Hospital for Children It was here that he first became interested in microsurgery and went on to design the world s first surgical microscope as well as specialised microsurgical instruments that he had specially made His description of surgery and hospitals in the 1950s is fascinating as is his description of the birth of microsurgery and his battles to convince older surgeons and hospital heads that the impossible could be doneUpon returning to Sydney Owen continued to pioneer microsurgery and describes his early research perfecting his techniue his worldwide workshops to teach others his innovative techniues and the clinical breakthroughs He had many firsts including the first to sew back on a child s severed finger the first vasectomy reversal and fallopian tube ligation reversal all procedures we take for granted these days He was also involved in the first hand transplant double hand transplant and face transplant And just in case you think that isn t enough to get you your own page in Wikipedia he was an excellent pianist lectured in Music at the University of Sydney and designed the new chairs in the Sydney Opera HouseOwen has a simple writing style and knows how to tell a good story without getting bogged down in medical jargon It s a great story to tell and I was saddened to read that this remarkable man died in 2014 not long after the publication of his autobiography
