Aussie surgeon’s two weeks in Gaza: ‘Is this kid going to have a good life if I save him?’

Surgeon Dr Sanjay Adusumilli and GP Dr Siraj Sira returned earlier this month from working in the war-torn area.

When Sydney colorectal surgeon Dr Sanjay Adusumilli was performing surgery on a 10-year-old in Gaza, part of him just wanted the child to die peacefully.

A piece of shrapnel had pierced the boy’s abdomen after a bomb blast, existing through his right buttock.
