I had an op in BMH Munster by a guy nicknamed Mac the flick hammer, never ever found out why funny though the op was a balls up military surgeons dont seem to have a good name really, any horror stories out there
Having worked with all manner of surgeons all three services and a large number of civillian surgeons from all over the world I have seen an equal percentage of what you call cock ups by all groups, I have worked with some truley gifted military and civillian and military surgeons, and some not so. As for the nick names we gave the surgeons nick names with a large amount of tounge in cheek, in the usual military way of things, I have been operated on by a few military and civvie urgeons, and being as I work with them do you think I would allow them near me!
he the man he the man, when my hand was clawed 2 days post op he told me there was nothing wrong with me and forced it open much to the disdain of my Mrs and even more to me who had to suffer it, after more surgery in the UK on my spine I feel another surgeon is taking his limelight though
Ah good old Mac the Knife ,hated sisters,loved OTT's,but had a nasty habit of throwing instruments across the room,at least when we still used the Charnley cell he couldn't do that,but being stuck in there for two hours on a hip replacement with him was hard work.
Talking of interesting surgeons anyone remember an obese gynae surgeon at BMH Muenster and BMH Iserlohn,nickname of fingers,wouldn't let the guy anywhere near my wife,used to hate scrubbing with him,always worried that he would slice my hands of with his knife wielding sausage fingers,was a scary sight to behold.
