CRUCIAL INTERVENTIONS: 19TH CENTURY REVOLUTIONS IN SURGERY
£6 (£4.50 with discount code WOTM25OFF) | Thu 21 January | 18:00-19:00
In this riveting talk, medical historian Richard Barnett - bestselling author of The Sick Rose - tells the story of 19th century revolutions in surgery: when operating theatres were literally places of spectacle, expertise and surgical instruments were regarded as ‘family secrets’, and patients were ‘mesmerised’ to help with pain.
Crucial Interventions follows the increasingly optimistic evolution of surgery, drawing from the very best examples of rare surgical textbooks with a focus on the extraordinary visual materials of the mid-19th century.
