|Title:||From Surgery: A Long Road to History||Contributor(s):||Weisz, George M (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9315||Abstract:||I have often been asked to explain my journey from surgeon to medical historian. Although the road was long, I saw both my interests as forms of creative art, complementing one another. Born into a cultural family in Eastern Europe, with classical and operatic music resounding within the walls of our small apartment, and with a respectable library, our happiness lasted until two totalitarian regimes destroyed our family's physical and spiritual health. Medicine was my all-consuming ambition, a vocation displacing everything else. For 37 years, while orthopaedic and spinal surgery preoccupied me entirely, music provided a permanent stimulation and art history a pleasure. Only much later, stabilised in my professional and family environment, could I return to my artistic interests.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Health and History, 10(2), p. 136-139||Publisher:||Australian and New Zealand Society of the History of Medicine||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1442-1771||Field of Research (FOR):||220205 History and Philosophy of Medicine||HERDC Category Description:||C2 Non-Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.anzshm.org.au/publications.html||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 23
