Dr. Michael Carey, chief of neurosurgery at the Manhattan, New York Veterans Affairs Hospital, washes his hands before performing brain surgery at Ramadi general hospital, July 30, 2008. The purpose of the surgery was to imply practical knowledge to a real-life situation with the guidance and assistance of an American neurosurgeon. "The intent was to show the Iraqi doctors different, more advanced ways in conducting a surgery," Carey said. "They watched my every move and procedure from start to finish."
