Orthopod Agrees to Work Pro Bono, Thought It Was Pro Bones

CHARLOTTE, NC – Recent orthopedic surgery graduate, Dr. Henry Hammer, graciously agreed to include 60 hours per week of pro bono work in his new contract.  “I love bones,” he tells the Gomerblog team, “so I thought this was my dream job!”  It wasn’t until his third month of work he realized that he was getting paid less than his days as a resident.  That’s when his financial planner wife realized he was working “pro bono.”

“I am always in favor of bones”

“I couldn’t believe it when my wife told me I was working for free!  I mean, I chose to be a surgeon to fundamentally change people’s lives and to heal.  But mainly I chose it to make big money, and more money,” Hammer shared, his biceps visibly flabbergasted.

He went on to explain why it’s a huge inconvenience to be working hard, not spending any time with his wife and kids, just to be helping others pro bono.

“If I wanted to give away free care,” explained Hammer, “I would have been a family practitioner.  Or a woman.”
