Henry Marsh

Humanising Medicine

The British neurosurgeon Henry Marsh caused a stir when he published memoirs describing his 35 years of experience—including more than 15,000 operations—because of his sincerity in portraying the more human side of the medical profession. He spoke with the journalist Eva Piquer about how to approach doctor-patient relations, and also how to rethink the function of hospitals with the aim of progressively humanising the care of ailing people.
