This is the story of a boy raised up in a village in Poland
during World War II, with his father deported to concentration
camps throughout the war. Some years after he graduated from
medical school, he serendipitously entered the then developing
field of dialysis, and he eventually embarked on a career-long
practice in the field, where he contributed to the development of a
number of new inventions and therapeutic methods.
The book contains 13 chapters covering the author's childhood,
education, and his career-long contributions to the field of
nephrology. The book includes inspirational stories of his
patients; the struggles he faced in the course of getting his
numerous inventions patented; his research work in the 1990s; his
work of teaching and consulting; and not the least, his travels to
interesting places unrelated to business. The book concludes with
an epilogue summarizing his life, as well as his predictions
regarding treatment of chronic renal failure in the future.
