Surgery of the Soul: Reflections on a Curious Career

Surgery of the Soul is an inspiring read.

Joseph E. Murray had an incredible career. He performed the first human kidney transplant in 1954 and went on to pioneer the field of craniofacial surgery. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1990 for organ transplantation.

He uses clinical cases to illustrate his many contributions to transplantation and plastic surgery. At the same time he interweaves these events with his personal story and family life.
