Graham Trevose is an ardent pioneer of reconstructive surgery,
having seen its huge benefit in the hands of a talented American
surgeon. However London is not America, and this new form of
treatment is received with deep suspicion by orthodox medicine. It
is seen as defying God's will and interfering with matters entirely
out of bounds. Yet Trevose is completely committed to this work and
uses it to help those in desperate need--while also benefiting from
performing plastic surgery on the rich and famous. The ethical
debates that perplexed medical men in post-First World War London
are surely the very ones that today's doctors are grappling with as
they face the issues of human cloning, animal organ transplants,
and embryo screening. Richard Gordon's "The Facemaker" is as
relevant today as it ever was.
