“Surgeons do not cry” book launched Friday

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/13 March) – “The stories of an institution like UP-PGH (University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital) are timeless. But as it is often said, nothing ever happened unless it is written down. There are so many stories to tell of the agonies and triumphs of both doctors and patients, who have peopled this venerable institution through the ages. I wrote the stories because I firmly believe that healing is a mutual process; that the healer is very often himself healed as he goes about caring for the ailing person. So the stories bite both ways.”
