SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I know this may sound insulting but I'm just curious. I've been watching the BostonMed show the last few weeks and I can't help but notice that all the surgeon's wives are very "homely" and far from hot. I'm just a med student and I always had thoughts of surgeons getting the hottest girls, so I was a bit surprised. Is the job of a surgeon so busy and stressful that you just want to marry someone that is loyal and will take care of the family end and perhaps over look the superficial aspect? I mean, these guy's are freakin neuro surgeons, trauma surgeons, plastic surgeons, CT surgeons at one of the best hospitals in the country! you think that would give you some street cred with the ladies!!!
