Summary "A raccoon bite on the arm doesn’t seem that serious to Melissa Loomis. But when it became a life-or-death medical crisis, even Melissa was readdy to live life one-handed. Dr. Ajay Seth - the son of immigrant parents from India and a local orthopaedic surgeon in private practice - worked hard to save Melissa's arm. But after days of treatment for recurring infection, he found himself performing his first-ever arm amputation. In the months that followed, divine intervention, combined with Melissa’s determination and Dr. Seth’s disciplined commitment and dedication to his patients, brought about a medical breakthrough that could transform the lives of amputees around the world."--Page 4 of cover
