A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Surgeon Collection - Surgeons are thought of with special respect. It may be the outright need of professional medical support, but it’s more than that. A bond forms between patient and surgeon based on caring. It is so apparent, we call it one of the “caring” professions. Much has been said of the "hands of a surgeon," with terms including steady, firm, sure, confident, delicate, implying a certain measure of talent and gift that is a prerequisite for the task. The sheer dedication and skill necessary to become a surgeon develops an appreciation by the receiver of the care involved. Surgeons work exceptionally hard to be worthy of the trust and faith involved by patients when they commit to surgery. Many surgeons have attained a measure of fame through their efforts in their particular fields and almost universally promote continued health based on a physically fit life-style including an appropriate diet and exercise program. 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 United States. 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 own hand drawn illustrations. 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. EPHRAIM McDOWELL was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, educated in Virginia, and Scotland under Dr. John Bell. Known as an accomplished abdominal surgeon, in 1809 he performed the first successful ovariotomy. His work largely ignored, he performed many more abdominal surgeries, one on President James Polk. 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. Pharmacy had roots in a movement to standardize the strength and purity of medicines (pharmacopoeia). The first such published lists were the Nuovo Receptario of Florence (1498) and the Dispensatorium of Colerius Cordis of Nuremberg (1546).
