This book is the Turkish translation of Onder het mes published by Thomas Rap.

What was the process that led to the current sterile and high-technology surgeries from bloody operations? In what circumstances did the ground-breaking surgical discoveries occur? What kind of people the surgeons actually are?

A surgeon himself, Arnold van de Laar answers these questions through the medical stories of famous patients and surgeons. He tells the surgical operations the historical figures had with his unique humor, such as Queen Victoria, Louis XIV, Lenin, Einstein, Kennedy, Pope John Paul II, Bob Marley, and Houdini. Laar clearly presents the development of surgery and its realities.

Under the Knife is the amusing history of a hundreds-year-old profession.
