Description


Have you ever wondered what golf clubs have to do with a devastating medical condition? Would you like to know the important role chainsaws play in surgical education? Did you know that pizza can be lifesaving? Dr. Alan Muskett has had careers in both cardiothoracic and now plastic and reconstructive surgery. He has been writing features on medical topics for years, exploring everything from the business of medicine to the intensely personal relationship between physical and spiritual health. Across the broad range of topics, these "insider" views are presented with an edgy humor as well as a poignancy that will both entertain and touch the reader.

Dr. Alan Muskett is a native of Missoula, Montana, graduating from Sentinel High School in 1975, which really wasn't all that long ago.

In 1991, he began private practice in Billings, Mt. and over the next twelve years did cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery. In 2003, he began a residency in plastic surgery at the University of Mississippi, and returned to Billings in 2005, joining Dr. Steve Grosso at Billings Plastic Surgery. He wife Pam, daughters Sally and Cathy, and son Luke are frequent fodder for Alan's columns. Over his careers in Billings, he has written features for the Health Section of the Billings Gazette. Selections of those columns, as well as some other pieces, comprise this collection.
