World famous heart surgeon Professor Stephen Westaby took chances and pushed the boundaries of heart surgery, thereby ┬ásaving hundreds of lives over the course of a thirty-five year career. Now, in his astounding memoir, he tells of┬ásome of his most remarkable and poignant cases – such as the baby who had suffered multiple heart attacks by six months old, a woman who lived the nightmare of locked-in syndrome, and a man whose life was powered by a battery for eight years. A powerful, important and incredibly moving book, Fragile Lives offers an exceptional insight into the exhilarating and sometimes tragic world of heart surgery, and how it feels to hold someone’s life in your hands.
