We haven't done this since 'The Picnic Papers' last year, all those funny book titles associated with food.
Can we think of great literary works associated with doctors, hospitals, medicine, illness, the human body? I'll start:

Ibsen's AN ENEMA OF THE PEOPLE
Barrie's PETER PANCREAS
Forster's A WOMB WITH A VIEW
Tolstoy's WARTS AND PEACE
Lawrence's SONS AND LIVERS
John Le Carre's THE SPY WHO CAME IN WITH A COLD
