Dr. Orthochick: Overreaction

Me: I presented our case of the lady who had the distal femur fracture that we treated with a retrograde nail.

Dr. James: What did everyone say?

Me: There was some debate as to whether we should have ordered a CT of the knee.

Dr. James: What? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life! Of course we didn’t! Why would we? Who would say such a thing? I’ll tell you what, anyone who would say that, well, that’s a cry for help. It’s someone who shouldn’t be an orthopedic surgeon. I hope you told them that.

Me: Not quite…

Dr. James: Well, you should have. Because that’s f***ing idiotic. That’s the absolute dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life.

It must be fun to be married to that guy.


  1. I know soooooo many people just like that.

  2. He was in charge of budget, wasn't he?
