Re-Visit A Surgeon's Knot

I am William Lynes, a physician, author, and physician burnout advocate and speaker. I have written a book entitled A Surgeon's Knot. Here in lies the story of a young physician's training. The saga tells of the challenging and exciting year of high-stakes sacrifice from the protagonist's viewpoint, Jackson Cooper. It is the story of the nobility of medicine, tragedy, and redemption.

A Surgeon's Knot is an evocative window into a world few experience. The healing art is noble, but it is a profession that requires of the physician to make a life-changing expenditure.

I am a Stanford-trained surgeon whose career and many incredible experiences inspire my writing. Modern surgical training involves tremendous responsibilities and often fearful and tragic experiences. I am drawn to tell this story because of my love of medicine. While the sacrifice is great, it has been my honor to practice as a physician and member of the healing fraternity.

Please visit the world of high-pressure, academic surgical training by evaluating my novel, A Surgeon's Knot.

Heart-pounding tales of a surgical intern that are both terrifying and profound. This medical thriller will stay with you long past the final chapter." –
