A fascinating history of the practice of surgery from one of the leading figures in the field, chronicling centuries of scientific breakthroughs by the discipline's most dynamic, pioneering doctors. Written by an author with plenty of experience holding a scalpel, Dr. David Schneider's 'The Invention of Surgery' is an in-depth biography of the practice that has leapt forward over the centuries from the dangerous guesswork of ancient Greek physicians through the world-changing 'implant revolution' of the 20th century. 'The Invention of Surgery' explains this dramatic progress and highlights the personalities of the discipline's most dynamic historical figures.
