Every day in every operating room, the same names are spoken over and over again. These names are the names of the great surgical innovators and teachers of the past. Surgeons call out for Kocher clamps and Deaver retractors. They perform Billroth gastric resections and Bassini hernia repairs. Those names have echoed from the sterile environments of operating rooms for over a hundred years. In Echoes from the Operating Room, Dr. Boyd tells the stories of the principal events and great men of surgery and science and their accomplishments in a concise and compelling style. From the sad story of the men who discovered anesthesia to the romantic reason rubber gloves were first worn by surgeons, the historical highlights that form the basis of modern surgery are brought to life. Every historical vignette concludes with a famous aphorism. Surgeons, nurses, medical students, and surgeons in training will find these stories essential to their heritage, and the public will be drawn in to that sacred and serious place where the stories unfold.
