No Crying in the Operating Room, Cecily Wang

Cecily Wang wanted to become a doctor to help people in the most fundamental ways possible, only to become disillusioned with the profession during medical school and residency. It wasn’t until she went on an international relief mission to Haiti in 2006 that she found herself practicing medicine as she had originally envisioned. She was able to help a sick person in great need, unencumbered by red tape and regulations. The patient’s health was all that mattered.

Cecily has continued to do demanding and extraordinarily challenging international work with Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) and other aid groups, addressing health challenges faced by communities affected by earthquakes, cholera, famine, and civil war in diverse regions, including Haiti, Myanmar, Samoa, Nigeria, South Sudan, and Syria. In the process, she has been stretched to her emotional limits, witnessed the worst and the best in human nature, and learned more about herself than she once could have imagined, all while performing life-saving surgeries and providing critical care to those in need.

No Crying in the Operating Room is a memoir like no other written by the incredible author Cecily Wang and what a story she shares with us readers. Wang, a doctor will take us readers on her journey across the world as a doctor working for Doctors Without Borders, providing relief to those who need it all around the world from Haiti, Syria, Samoa, and Nigeria to name a few. Wang was somebody that became disillusioned with the profession after medical school and her residency but it wasn’t until her work with Doctors Without Borders that she truly felt whole – helping people that desperately need it and administering life-saving care. Wang’s story makes for a powerful and moving read that will provoke readers from beginning to end as well as inspire you and this book lovers is the short premise of the incredible No Crying in the Operating Room.

I adore memoirs because they give the reader insight into a person’s life but I love memoirs with themes such as this one because the reader is whisked away on a journey that is incredibly poignant and Wang is so brilliantly descriptive about the places she visits and the help she administers, that the reader will feel as if they are right there experiencing every moment the author is.
