Surgeon's Dilemma

Stereotypical thinking is one of the major barriers to awareness. Generalisations can help to make sense of the world but they can also seriously mislead us...

A young man who had been badly injured in a car accident has been brought into a hospital's accident and emergency department. The doctor determines that emergency brain surgery is required. Accordingly, the brain surgeon is paged. Upon seeing the patient, the surgeon exclaims, 'My God, I can't operate on that boy! He's my son!'
That is so, but the surgeon is not the boy's father. How can the apparent contradiction be explained?
