Ok so I have been shadowing a surgeon for two years in October, he has been a great mentor and really helped me get a grasp for why this profession is so great. He is resigning from his position in Birmingham and moving back to his home state of Kentucky. So I want to buy him and his staff some gifts to say thank you. First of all I think I will buy his nurses some food/gift baskets with coffee, and fruits. Any other suggestions are appreciated though. Second of all, what do you get a surgeon? I have considered a few things like ink refills for the pens he carries with him, he is really anal about them and doesn't let anyone use them and it is obvious he loves them. Another thing that was suggested to me is just to buy him some type of alcohol, a nice wine or maybe some scotch or something? I have never bought a gift like this. I've bought my family/friends gifts but I've never been in this type of gift giving situation. If anyone has surgery related suggestions (he is an orthopedic surgeon btw, mainly hip/knee replacements) there might be a cool silly gift associated with his practice. Anyway, thanks for all the great responses as always!
