How has he got himself into a predicament of having to hide failed surgeries?
I was thinking more into the idea of giving the surgeon a split-personality disorder much like that of Dr. Jekyll in which a Hyde-like personality was taking over him, doing horrible deeds and the flowers getting revenge on the personality forcing it away? It just seemed ironic to have a brain surgeon with a psychological defect that can be treated with brain surgery.
