A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Gastroenterology Collection - Gastroenterology - the medical specialty that is concerned with the disorders of the digestive system. Gastroenterology is just one of many branches of medicine, of which some have been commemorated with postage stamps, both U.S. and foreign. Hippocrates, the "Father of Medicine," who studied the workings of the human body in about 400 B.C., was convinced of the importance of the brain, nervous system, and the circulatory system. In more modern times Dr. Andrew said "The functioning of all body organs and systems depend on the integrating forces of the nervous and circulatory systems." As is the case with all parts and organs of the body, the digestive tract depends on the circulatory system. The specialty of gastroenterology, with its emphasis on the digestive tract, makes use of colonoscopy and endoscopy. One of the more ironic aspects of the field that encompasses colon cancer is that while colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death, it is probably the easiest to diagnose and treat if found in the early stages.

HARVEY CUSHING founded neurosurgery, contributed to understanding the pituitary, its disease symptoms being known as Cushing’s Syndrome. He contributed a great deal to training new surgeons, with text books illustrated with his own casework findings and his brilliant hand drawn illustrations.

This was the beginning of ether anesthesia in the U.S.
