"With one glance, Dr. DeRienzo creates a human connection with his patients and reminds us that we need to build trust, value the sacred relationship between a doctor and a patient, and restore the patient voice and narrative back to healthcare. He gives the reader hope that healthcare can be healed." - Dr. Bridget DuffyImagine holding a baby girl's life in your hands - now imagine she's no bigger than a soda can. Every year, nearly 4 million babies are born in the United States. Most arrive safely and go home with their families in a matter of days. But not all babies come into the world healthy and almost half a million arrive well before they are expected. These newborns need tiny medicine. Told from the first-person perspective, Dr. Chris DeRienzo walks readers through the human experience of caring for the world's smallest and sickest patients. Readers will learn the secrets of the NICU, the loneliness that comes with life and death decisions, and the incredibly powerful sense of purpose and triumph that comes with just making it through the night and keeping everyone alive. In the end, this book delivers an insider's view of what it's really like to serve the world's tiniest humans."Tiny Medicine offers a rare, behind-the-scenes, look into the life and work of one of our nation's leading neonatologists, Dr. Chris DeRienzo. Full of compelling stories, humor, and raw emotional vulnerability, DeRienzo takes us on a journey through the joys and tragedies of caring for the smallest patients, often in life or death situations." - Nate Klemp, PhD, New York Times Best-Selling author
