Something is terribly wrong. Ira Stone feels scared, angry, and helpless as he watches his life slowly disintegrate before his eyes. Once a renowned neurosurgeon beloved by his patients, Ira cannot help but remember the one horrifying moment in his life when, while distracted by surgical emergencies and the fury of his chief, he missed the diagnosis of cancer in his brother, Michael.
Michael's death catalyzes Ira into a downward spiral of guilt assuaged only by the bottle. As Ira's tormented soul becomes entangled in a nightmare of alcohol and sex, he soon realizes he simply cannot take one without the other. But his actions do not come without consequences-his marriage is falling apart and his career is in jeopardy. The dark addictions deep within his brain drive him from his family and into the arms of Stephanie DeLeon, a beautiful surgical nurse who, unbeknownst to Ira, harbors evil intentions. But Stephanie has no idea what lies ahead for her and her sister, Stella.
The Neurosurgeon follows a brain surgeon's intense psychological journey through the darkness of addiction as he desperately searches for the healing light of redemption.
