The Early History of Surgery by Bishop

  • Aug 14, 2004
Rating:
+5
This book is perfect for anyone interested in the beginnings of
surgery and practice. The Baganda of Central Africa popularized
bloodletting to purge disease. The Caesarean section was employed in Uganda circa 1879. The Romans practiced a rudimentary form of surgery in Pompeii in the 1st century AD.
Lanfranc of Milan popularized lithotomy and cataract surgery.
His school believed that wounds in vital organs tended to be
fatal. Later, Wiseman dealt with amputation and anaesthesia
was popularized. This book would be excellent for any student
of science or medicine. It is a good value for the price charged.
