Richard Wiseman 1622-1676.
Ann R Coll Surg Engl. 1996 Jul; 78(4 Suppl):193-5.AR

Abstract

Wiseman, like Paré, learnt his surgery on the battlefield. On his return to civilian practice in London he became the first consultant surgeon, only treating patients referred to him. Increasing ill-health allowed him time to write and the resulting Severall Chirurgicall Treatises describes over 600 of his own cases. It is a more detailed and personal account than any written by his contemporaries, and his sections on the King's Evil and cancer show a remarkable understanding of disease for his time. Wiseman raised the status of British surgery very considerably, his work having a great influence well into the 18th century.
