Dr Sulling is a legend, a star of the medical world who was as famous in the Soviet Union as any pop icon. He is one of the pioneers of cardiac surgery and the founder of the field in Estonia. During his long career he has performed over 4,000 heart surgeries, approximately half of which have been beating-heart surgeries. His excellence and research have won him much international acclaim.
This book tells a story of a keen medical student who became a top surgeon on one-fourth of the continent and of all the (often anecdotal) obstacles in his way.
The book is valuable literature both to patients and doctors alike.
