Read about Dr. Jim Smythe fourteen years before the novel, Surgical Heights, in the prequel, A Surgical Plight.

In his chief residency year, Jim is preparing to set out into the world as a full-fledged surgeon. Soon after he assesses an emergency patient, an unexpected turn rocks his sense of confidence. As the year progresses, his final preparation as a surgeon soars, while his troubled state over the difficult case stands to upend the completion of his final training year. With final oral exams in his sights, Jim struggles to overcome his shattered confidence before it’s too late.

A Surgical Plight describes the challenges and excitement of a general surgery resident in the final year of training, mired in the consequences of a case gone bad.
