Topdokters with a hammering and a cutting tool

Topdokters think about life, and about how they happened to be on tv. We suspect some of them advance a few solid one-liners to memorize where they are during the recording of it can extract.

‘Between the knife of the assassin and the surgeon is only the intention, ” spoke traumachirurg Stefaan Nijs last week weighty. Nijs seemed to be constructed out of the weight, and weight, that he, with the help of a personal trainer under control, tried to get.

Less coffee according to that personal trainer help, since Nijs has already closed the stuff in for he to his day’s work begins. That mostly consists of knives, people are crossing, even more coffee, in the operating theatre to Rammstein listen to, and themselves to patients as ‘professor Nijs’. He dreamed ever of a fighter pilot to be, but people keep it alive after accident ‘spectacular’.

Nijs said that the confidence of the patient is of paramount importance. The our was he after this episode, you already lost, especially when we put to him in the Netherlands, a proposal saw about ‘mass casualty events’, through which he has gained experience on 22 march 2016. ‘Terror’, as he began his presentation on the pedantst possible sound, while in the background machine gun fire was heard. ‘Actually it is very simply.’

Luckily for this season are not all topdokters of his caliber. Had yesterday also a neurosurgeon Robert Hes a sharp oneliner: “There must be something in you, making you easy a knife in a man can cross.’ We then Hes a spine with a hammer and a chisel, saw edit. ‘It’s like a dishwasher repair, ” he said after the job, ‘only you have no spare parts available if you make a mistake.’

We hope all of these specialists and surgeons have their place in the spotlight. It remains fascinating television about a fascinating world, and that people work so hard that they hardly come to their way too high fees to souperen.

But each new season of Topdokters seems to us to be something hagiografischer than the previous one, the patients are interchangeable props in the heroic tales of the intrepid doctors, who even do not have time for a slice of bread with choco to eat while they all save lives. It would be, since the advent of Rush 24/7 that the us starts to bother? That program is what seem more distant, and it is made from the point of view of the patients (one piece toppatiënten, by the way). You can see the doctors of their great work, without that they tell yourself how fantastic they are doing their job. That only makes it stronger.
