Dr. Yusuf Kodwavwalla Dawood, a renowned surgeon and writer, passed away yesterday in the United Kingdom at the age of 94.

The main reason Dawood is well-known is because he wrote and published the column "Surgeon's Diary" for the Sunday Nation newspaper for a total of 38 years.

In the essay, Dawood talked about both the personal and professional things he learned from working with patients, which both had to do with medicine.
