Book Description: In medicine, good hands refers to a doctor's technical prowess, but there is much more to hands. This new book, a beautifully produced photographic collection, gives you a rare view of the most important instruments any neurosurgeon will ever use. Dr. Siddiqi has spent over seven years photographing the hands of top neurosurgeons from around the world--young, old, male, and female.Every physician understands the aesthetic, physical, and metaphysical nuances of the hand, and many believe that without hands, the heart and brain would be incomplete. They are what give us humanity, often reflected in the symbolic healing hands. Every doctor has experienced moments where the best care they could provide is simply holding their patient's hand. This book provides a unique look at hands for all neurosurgeons and art lovers alike.
