A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Neurosurgeon Collection - • Hippocrates, the "Father of Medicine," in about 400 B.C. was certainly convinced of the importance of the brain and by extension the nervous system. And at the turn of the century, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still wrote a book, "Philosophy of Osteopathy," in which he described the 3 principles underlying a healthy body. The third principal in particular is; "The functioning of all body organs and systems depend on the integrating forces of the nervous and circulatory systems." The body is kept in a healthy balance only when all systems are functioning together. • Today, Neurologists are faced with the daunting task of discerning whether an ailment is of neurological origin, and to what degree. The neurological examination is one of the most unique in all of clinical medicine. Whereas the history is the most important element in defining the clinical problem, the neurological examination localizes a lesion within the central or peripheral nervous system. "History tells you what it is, and examination tells you where it is." The history and examination allow the neurologist to arrive at the etiology and pathology of the condition, which are essential for treatment planning. Considerable insight and intuition are required to interpret the symptoms and signs of the exam. • With the advent of computed tomography scanning, Dr. McDonald Critchley said, "CT scanning will take away the shadows of neurology, but the music will still remain." The latest tool is the computer. • The history of neurology is difficult to unearth, however there is an 1892 case in which American neurologist Francis Xavier Dercum at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pa, referred to an unusual progressive neurological syndrome of unknown etiology ... The only doctor commemorated on a U.S. postage stamp is Harvey Cushing who is known as the father of neurology. • Neurosurgery holds the promise of improved tools and techniques better understand and improve treatments. Paul White pioneered in diagnosis and prevention of diseases of the heart and circulatory systems, and was one of the first to use the electro-cardiograph to detect disorders. His 1931 book Heart Disease, is a standard reference in the field. He was a staunch advocate of weight control, proper diet and daily exercise. William & Charles Mayo joined their father at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN, and while building a cooperative group clinic made up of many specialties, including cardiology, founded the Mayo Clinic in 1905, and later the Graduate School of Medicine in 1915. CRAWFORD LONG received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and performed the first surgery using ether in 1842, finally publishing his results in 1849. This was the beginning of ether anesthesia in the U.S. 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 hand drawn illustrations. EPHRAIM McDOWELL, known as an accomplished abdominal surgeon performed the first successful ovariotomy in 1809. He performed many surgeries, one on President James Polk. MARY WALKER was far ahead of her times on women’s rights, becoming a physician in 1855 and serving as a nurse in the Civil War until commissioned and made an assistant surgeon. She became the first woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, awarded for her medical work in the Civil War.
