About the Book:
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 twentieth century. The Invention of Surgery explains this dramatic progress, highlighting the personalities of the discipline's most dynamic historical figures and analyzing how our conception of surgery has changed alongside our evolving ideas of medicine, technology, and our bodies.
