In this episode we have the fortune of speaking with Consultant Paediatric Neurosurgeon Mr. Jay Jayamohan. This was a very pionient and moving conversation about the importance of 'Empathy' and caring for not only the patient in ones care but the whole family.
Dr Jay works at our local Hospital, the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford and is also an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Oxford. He has been the star of two highly acclaimed BBC fly-on-the-wall series following the work of neurosurgeons.
Dr Jay's work breaks down into three primary areas: Paediatric Neurosurgery - tackling tumours and congenital problems in children; Craniofacial Reconstruction - working with a plastic surgeon to give babies or victims of accidents a shot at a normal life; Expert Witness - employed by the courts to help solve head related crimes or provide the case for the defence.
Jay is also the author of acclaimed book "Everything That Makes Us Human: Case Notes of a Children's Brain Surgeon". Described by Dr Amanda Brown, author of The Prison Doctor as "an inspirational book written by a truly remarkable man" and 'Extraordinary' by the The Times.
