 Synopsis  Information
AUSTRALIAN. Ken Clezy, AM, OBE, is a surgeon whose vocation has taken him many places, not all of them safe. When three colleagues were shot dead at a Yemen mission hospital he escaped only because he had gone home for breakfast. In Port Moresby, where Ken Clezy was the first professor of surgery at the University of Papua New Guinea, doctors and nurses still say, 'Mr Clezy did it this way.' He performed brain and spinal tumour surgery in that country for many years, was a pioneer of non-operative management of the ruptured spleen in adults, but his particular expertise was in the reconstructive surgery of leprosy deformities. In Now in Remission, Ken Clezy shares the joys and sorrows of his family and professional life in the Third World, most recently in Yemen during the Second Gulf War. His story is rich in character and place, and tells of a remarkable life dedicated to those in need.
