Painted by a Doctor and a Surgeon, Joe Wilder MD.

Dr. Joe Wilder, a Surgeon himself and also a Professor of Surgery, painted a vast collection of medical paintings that he called his ‘Surgeons at Work’ series; they depict a life of the love of medicine from the point of view of a dedicated doctor, and Professor to thousands of students and doctors, over a 50 year career.

Doctors love Wilder’s medical artwork because the paintings portray exactly what it feels like to be a surgeon: prepare for a surgery, work with a team of people during an operation, and then how they feel after the surgery is over.

The faces and gestures in these paintings convey the feelings and respect that the doctor has for his patient and the other doctors working with him, the concentration required for a surgery, and the reverence for the OR. One can look at the face in the painting and know exactly what that person is feeling.

Doctors See Themselves 

Doctors also love the paintings because they can identify with them. They know that Dr Wilder has captured what it feels like to be a surgeon – the dedication the surgeon feels, how they prepare for the operation ahead in which they are in control of a human life, and the great satisfaction they feel after a successful surgery.

When Wilder’s medical paintings hang in a doctor’s waiting room, they convey to the patients a sense of well-being and confidence. They instill in them the feeling that they will be well taken care of and that the doctor cares about them above all.




“I have tried in my surgical paintings to portray the surgeons as the dedicated caring hardworking individual I’ve observed by the thousands he my 35-year career as a chief and professor of surgery.” Dr Joe Wilder

CONTEMPLATION

BEFORE SURGERY

When I paint I use lessons learned in the World of  the Surgical Operating room, to pry open my eyes and give them better insight into human behavior.

His body and mind are now as prepared as they will ever be to engage the surgical challenge ahead.
