Medicine's means of separating self and body, and the body's ways of resisiting are the focus of this book. Disembodiment is the foundational gesture of medicine, how then does medical practice acknowledge the presence of the person in the objectified body? The author considers in detail the "choreography" such a manoeuvre requires, and the different turns it can take during a routine examination, surgery, or even an autopsy. Distinctions between public and private assume new meanings as medical practice moves from one venue to another - waiting room to examining table, from the body's exterior to its interior.
