Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s already extensive resume just got even longer.

In addition to his careers as a neurosurgeon and chief medical correspondent for CNN, Dr. Gupta is now a novelist.

Monday Mornings tells the story of life at a hospital from the physician’s perspective, revealing everyday drama that patients don’t often witness. The name of the book refers to the weekly meetings in which surgeons come together to discuss the past week’s surgeries, what went wrong, and how to avoid those mistakes in the future. Dr. Gupta said that these meetings¬† are often unnerving for surgeons.

“It’s unsettling to surgeons to realize they’re not infallible. Operating on the wrong side of the head? It happens.”

While this is Dr. Gupta’s first novel, the title of ‘author’ has belonged to him for a while. He’s written two other non-fiction books which were both best sellers.

Dr. Gupta’s Vitals profile lists him as a neurosurgeon with 15 years experience. He is an assistant professor of neurosurgery at Emory University School of Medicine and associate chief of the neurosurgery service at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.
