Details

Charlie Teo is one of Australia's most celebrated yet controversial neurosurgeons. His pioneering 'keyhole' techniques have earned him praise around the world, but in his home country he is regarded by some in the profession as reckless and even dangerous. His stock in trade is 'inoperable' brain tumours - those malignant cancers that others don't dare treat - and by any estimation he is incredibly successful. In over 5000 operations, he has never lost a patient on the table. His more famous cases have included talkback radio shock jock Stan Zemanek, the wives of cricketers Steve Waugh and Glenn McGrath, the cancer specialist Dr Chris O'Brien, and the young classical pianist, Aaron McMillan. Life in His Hands is the remarkable true story of a medical maverick and one of his most high-profile and tragic cases. It is a book full of heartache and hope and scientific marvels.
