Dr Max Coleman Book Launch

Dr Max Coleman Book Launch: The Doers: A Surgical History of St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, 1857-2007

Guests gathered on Monday 3 December 2020 to celebrate the Book Launch of Dr Max Coleman: The Doers: A Surgical History of St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, 1857-2007. The book details the colourful and rich history, and evolution, of surgery performed at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney.

St Vincent’s surgeons have been thinkers and doers of great ability, generosity and dedication. A surgeon for thirty years at St Vincent’s, Dr Coleman has memorialised medical staff in the volume. With this in mind, he gives details of their extensive studies, skills and services. Using his personal experience, and detailed research, he has done justice to those who strove for excellence since 1857. Furthermore, he has charted every aspect of surgery, including developments in anaesthetics, equipment, and techniques.

What’s Next For Surgery?

Our doctors and researchers are always coming up with new ways to make it easier for surgeons to save lives. Importantly, to make treatment of emergency trauma patients more effective, more precise and less painful. On the evening, guests also heard about the St Vincent’s Curran Foundation’s campaign to raise $9.3 million for the Hospital’s new Emergency Trauma Operating Theatre. The theatre will be equipped with a highly specialised life-saving machine, the Mega RAPTOR.
