An encouraging and inspiring true story on how a boy from India overcame a difficult childhood and devastating hand injuries and became one of the most preeminent cardiac surgeons in the U.S.

A pioneer in the evolution of treatments for heart disease, America's number one cause of death in men and women, Dr. Arun Singh has witnessed life and death from a vantage point nearly unmatched in medical history, while performing over 15,000 open heart surgeries. Revered by colleagues and patients, under the hot lights of the O.R. this award-winning surgeon has spent thousands of hours performing life-saving repairs, while witnessing the miraculous, the joyous, and the devastating. He has held the life-giving heart in his hand and has been praised for his tireless devotion to preserving the lives this organ sustains.

Dr. Singh's decorated career is an odyssey of remarkable determination. To illuminate the power of perseverance, Dr. Signh recounts how the same two hands that have so expertly worked to extend life were once crushed and his future nearly shattered. In YOUR HEART, MY HANDS he recalls the fortitude that saw him through a complicated boyhood in India, struggles with dyslexia, and finding his way as an immigrant, to become one of America's most highly-regarded and prolific surgeons.

Reflecting on over 40 years of practice, Dr. Singh shares intimate O.R. secrets, riveting patient accounts, and the life lessons he learned treating his most memorable patients. This book will inspire, enlighten, and captivate readers of medical narrative.
