Abstract:

This book, a volume of personal reminiscences, is not a medical treatise; it is written for my friends among the profession and the general public. Having retired after 40 years of practice in gynecology and surgery, I consider it a prerogative to discuss freely with the lay reader intimate problems which are met from day to day by every practitioner of scientific medicine -- the family doctor, the surgeon, the specialist. The professional pages of this volume dwell briefly upon cooperation with progressive men during the years of transition in medical practice -- 1880 to 1920. Within those four decades the "art" of medicine was superseded by the "science and art" of medicine; preventive medicine was introduced and developed; scientific discoveries, and the utilization of organized methods to regulate the environment of medicine, its social aspects, educational requirements, and institutional aids practically revolutionized the teaching and the practice of medicine. In a word, a progressive profession was being rounded out to its maximum of usefulness. - Preface.

This is an interesting record of the struggle and successful career of a farmer's son who became the moving spirit in organising the surgical profession in America, and in founding the clinical Congress of Surgeons of North America (1910) which gave birth to the American College of Surgeons in 1913, and in 1905 Surgery, Gynecology and Obstetrics, which began with six hundred subscribers, now has more than thirteen thousand, and is described by Dr. William J. Mayo, in one of the two forewords, as the greatest surgical journal in the world. - British Institute of Radiology.
