I doubt you would get many neurosurgeons interested, when I was working in
neuro my boss used to tell me he went into neuro because it was the one
surgical speciality you didn't have to operate through fat!

In all of the discussions about morbid obesity, I was struck by the
underlying theme of prejudice against the obese.While the statements may
have varied, it was clearly stated over and over again. Of course,
everyone will deny such prejudice, or rationalize it, or joke about it.
It has all been done before for race or creed. Now with this particular
patient population, it is being done for medical reasons. If anyone on
this list is overweight, or really obese, I wonder if any of the
comments hurt? Could such feelings on the part of surgeons obscure
their objectivity?
