History of Surgery and Anaesthesia"

History of Surgery

Welcome to my website, a site developed for ODP's and Nurses who are interested on their roots in the Operating Department.
This subject that has become more popular over the years, with students now expected to have some idea of their proffession.
It can also be a useful research site for those Surgeons and Anaesthetists who have an interest in history.
I have kept the site simplistic so that it can be understood by the general public who wish to explore Surgery and its beginings.
I would welcome any coments to improve the site that is for instance, if you believe that some other contributer to the developement of the success of surgery, anaesthesia or complementry field need a mention.
All references can be accessed by clicking the image or the reference number.
