Patient care and wellness is the primary goal of a physician. As a surgeon with more than 30 years of experience I believe that it is more important to decide when not to operate than to perform an intervention that might not benefit the patient even if the intervention is successful. Each patient is an individual that is facing a disease that requires understanding for resolution. An illness is not just a pathological process but a psychological one and a caring physician has to treat both.
