About the Book

The Jaded Caduceus deals with the trials and tribulations of a trauma surgeon who suffered a severe laceration to the palm of his hand while operating inside an AIDS patient’s chest in 1986. Six weeks later, the surgeon seroconverts, and subsequently, the remainder of his life is destroyed martially, emotionally, professionally, and financially. In the end, the HIV-infected surgeon accepted his plight and calmly awaits his death.
