I first read the book in 1986. Mr. Church writes about a Jewish surgeon, named Ron Lapin, who became one of the earliest doctors to agree to do bloodless surgery on Jehovah's Witnesses. A few of them went to Mr. Lapin and told him that as a group they wanted medical treatment like anyone else might, including heart surgery, brain surgery etc.etc. They explained to him that they could not find a doctor willing to do the major surgeries unless they could give them blood. They explained to him their belief in God and how God says over 200 times in the bible not to eat blood. And that it is a commandment given to gentiles in Acts 15:20. Well he thought about it and he knew that as a Jew he wouldn't want anyone to make him eat pork! He agreed to treat them without blood. One of the first things he noticed was how quickly they healed versus if he had given them blood. He only lost one patient because she was in another state and they didn't get her to him in time. Doctor Lapin also became the first surgeon to use an electric knife on his patients. Here is how that happened. On week-ends he used to keep in practice by operating on animals, where he could use an electric knife. He noticed that when he made incisions using it that there was hardly any blood loss, because the cut was so smooth that cauterization immediately took place whereas if he had used just a regular scapel there is a lot of blood loss. He went around and around with the powers that be and finally was allowed to use an electric knife on his human patients. Also when he first started doing bloodless surgeries he was fired from several hospitals because he wouldn't use blood on his Jehovah's Witness patients. When I read the book, at that time there was over 1000 doctors in California that he had trained in bloodless surgery. I believe he was practicing in Orange County at the time. The book is a very enteresting read.

A biting true story of a doctor who specialized in BLOODLESS surgery and was fought every step of the way by our medical community, even though it was obviously safer and better in every regard.

I could not put this book down. Gene Church is an excellent writer and this true story he chose to document was written in such a way that I could hardly wait to get to the next page. Dr. Lapin paved the way for the medical treatments we benefit from today and he did this despite negative feedback from others.
