A Proud Heritage: An Informal History of Surgery at Columbia
Proud Heritage Chronicles History of Surgery at Columbia University
The Columbia University Department of Surgery is proud to annonce publication of A Proud Heritage: An Informal History of Surgery at Columbia. Editors Frederic P. Herter, MD, Alfred Jaretzki III, MD, and Kenneth A. Forde, MD capture the personal dedication, intellectual excitement, and intrinsic joy of Columbia surgeons through the ages — whether pioneering vascular surgery in the early 1800s, or using a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to extend the life of a patient with heart failure today. They offer an insightful and often humorous account of generations of Surgeons-in-Chief at Columbia who have struggled with encouraging innovation while teaching excellence, and they provide an insider's look at a surgeon's life.
