The Chronicles of a Village Surgeon

by Dr. Stanley Aruyaru

The Chronicles of a Village Surgeon is a masterfully written book, easy to read and spiced with humour. The book captures accounts of the clinical experiences of a dedicated surgeon working in the remote towns of Kenya. Pulsating with passion and heart-moving stories of patients experience to health challenges and health systems attempt to help, the book paints a picture of how things work and sometimes fail to work at the time patients are on the nick of need. Literally, through the pages, the author shows us how the society looks through the lenses of a surgeon; from domestic and gender based violence to belief in curses and alternative medicine; from doing everything to save a patient’s life to respecting a patient’s autonomy even when it puts their life in danger. Besides, we get to see what it takes to become a surgeon and how it feels to offer medical care in resource-restrained settings of Kenya. Strange as some of the stories shared here may sound, none of them is. The society we live in and serve is full of people whose experiences and perspectives may sound far-fetched but they are all here with us. The book is a compilation of stories that cover Twenty Eight critical themes, useful for both common readers as well as clinical practitioners seeking to learn and appreciate the dynamics of health care.
