Are surgeons really psychopaths?
BCIS ACI 2018 continues the tradition of having a keynote speaker from a field remote to cardiology.
This year we have the pleasure of welcoming Henry Marsh to ACI “Are surgeons really psychopaths?”
Henry Marsh was until 2015 the senior consultant neurosurgeon at the Atkinson Morley Wing at St George’s Hospital, south London, one of the country’s largest specialist brain surgery units.
He specialises in operating on the brain under local anaesthetic and was the subject of a major BBC documentary Your Life in Their Hands in 2004, which won the Royal Television Society Gold Medal.
His widely-acclaimed memoir Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death and Brain Surgery was published by Orion Publishers in 2014
