"Charlie Teo is one of Australias most celebrated yet controversial neurosurgeons. His pioneering 'keyhole' techniques have earned him praise around the world, but in his home country he is regarded by some in the profession as reckless and even dangerous. In 2001, at the age of 24, Aaron McMillan was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumour. He underwent 12 hours of surgery. Two days later he was back playing the piano, preparing to record and perform. Life In His Hands is the remarkable true story of a medical maverick and one of his most high-profile and tragic cases. It is a book full of heartache and hope and scientific marvels. Ultimately, it is a testament to the strength of the human spirit."--Provided by publisher.
