Life in His Hands

by Susan Wyndham

Charlie Teo is one of Australia’s most celebrated yet controversial neurosurgeons. So when classical pianist Aaron McMillan was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumour at the age of 24 he approached Teo for treatment. Two days after brain surgery lasting 12 hours, McMillan was back playing the piano. Life in His Hands is the remarkable true story of a medical maverick and one of his most high-profile and tragic cases. Full of heartache and hope, it’s a testament to the power of the human spirit.
