Speed Surgery – Surgery in the 19th Century
18 April, 2015 @ 2:00 pm£6.50
A surgical demonstration presented within the original architecture of the old operating theatre of St. Thomas’s Hospital of 1822. Before the advent of anaesthesia, an operation had to be swift. Without hand-washing or antiseptics, the chance of later infection was high.
