About the Author

Tony Bartelme has received numerous national awards for his investigative reports, including honors by the Scripps Foundation, Sigma Delta Chi, and Gerald Loeb Foundation. He has been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize three times, including the series that is the basis for A Surgeon in the Village, which he spent four years researching and writing. He was the recipient of a 2011 Harvard University Nieman Fellowship and is a graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. He is senior projects reporter for the Post and Courier, in Charleston, South Carolina, where he lives.


"Bartelme writes knowingly of the dedication of a valiant doctor determined to change how modern medicine interacts with the world."
-Publishers Weekly

"Problem solving, improvising, and expressing compassion permeate this unusual and fascinating chronicle."

"A lyrical, inspirational and altogether rewarding account of first- and third-world surgeons working together to perform neurosurgery miracles in the heart of Africa."
-Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation

"A Surgeon in the Village turns the modern philanthropic paradigm on its head. In this inspiring story of cultivating medical sustainability, Tony Bartelme teases out the human dimensions of neurosurgery and illustrates how connection and mentoring have the power to transform entire nations."
-Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, author of What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear

"This exceptionally well-written book, a compelling tribute to the human spirit and to generosity, brings into sharp focus the shortage of surgeons in sub-Saharan Africa. In poetic prose, Bartelme describes how a dedicated and caring mentor can transfer knowledge and neurosurgical skills to a Tanzanian clinician with little formal training so that the latter can perform simple neurosurgical procedures that save lives. This is a book that every student and practitioner of global surgery will find enjoyable and inspiring reading."
-Haile Debas, founding director of the University of California Global Health Institute

"In A Surgeon in the Village, Tony Bartelme deftly weaves history and current affairs into a powerful story of redemption and hope. This book is a page-turner that will leave you transfixed and transformed."
-James M. Scott, 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist for Target Tokyo: Jimmy Doolittle and the Raid That Avenged Pearl Harbor
