This idea does hold interesting implications for Franz Bonaparta, however, since he was also a neurosurgeon in addition to being a psychiatrist and a children's book author.

** And sometimes a cigar can just be a cigar. Tenma isn't exactly the most realistic surgeon. In fact, [[http://www.alternet.org/culture/10-careers-most-psychopaths surgeons]] are believed to have a higher proportion of psychopaths than average (or at the very least psychopathic traits). Even doctors in general seem to have higher resistance to stress according to [[http://publishing.rcseng.ac.uk/doi/full/10.1308/rcsbull.2015.331 one study]]. Tenma possesses very few traits commonly associated with psychopathy, if any at all. And as resilient as he is, the amount of emotional reactivity he exhibits (especially toward matters of life and death) would be more of a hindrance than an asset in the OR. If Tenma were a real doctor, it would be unlikely that he would be in a surgical field.

** And sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Tenma isn't the most realistic surgeon. In fact, [[http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/01/06/these-are-the-top-10-jobs-most-likely-to-attract-psychopaths-should-we-be-worried/ surgeon is #5]] on a list of careers that attract people with psychopathic traits, and Tenma is definitely no psychopath. (That would explain Heinemann and the other surgeons' callous attitudes though...) He even admits that he gets nervous while performing surgery, so he's not really comfortable with the idea of cutting people up. It's also possible that he wasn't even planning to be a surgeon initially, since in ''Another Monster'' it's revealed that he went to study under Heinemann due to an article on Alzheimer's, which would fall under neurology instead. This does hold interesting implications for Franz Bonaparta, however, since he was also a neurosurgeon in addition to being a psychiatrist and a children's book author.
* This is both FridgeBrilliance and minor FridgeHorror: Remember Tenma's little flashback after the Turkish man's wife confronted him? While it may not seem like an important point, Dr. Oppenheimer didn't directly tell Tenma that he was switched. He simply said that the Turkish man's operation ''wasn't his operation.'' Tenma could have simply taken that as there being a mix-up of some sort. (Note that he was just getting done putting on his scrubs. Later, when we see him looking at Johan's x-ray, he already has his scrubs on. So with the Turkish man, it was likely that he had just come in.) This casts Tenma's JustFollowingOrders comment to Eva in a different light: He wasn't responsible if it was the director's mistake. It was only when Eva replied that not all lives are created equal that Tenma started to catch on to what really happened. If this is what happened, that means that Heinemann was intentionally deceiving Tenma to get him to comply. When the deception failed due to word getting out that the Turkish man did come in first, Heinemann had to use other means to get Tenma to do his bidding, such as appealing to his desire to do research. This leads to another question, however: ''Just what else did Heinemann do to deceive people?'' We know he never told the truth about the paper that inspired Tenma being ghostwritten. There's no telling what else he could have done.
