Endless studies, a long and often difficult internship, then just a „good” well paid job. In my opinion, priceless. Saving life at the operating table is a pure form of magic. We are not allowed to observe a spectacle during which surgeons often cheat death and give a second life. This is how the surgeons work in Katowice at the Transplantation Clinic. My diploma thesis shows one of the days of work on the borderline of life and death where surgeons play the main role.
