READ The Knife Man Blood Body Snatching and the Birth of Modern Surgery Wendy Moore æ 1 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS ê The Knife Man Blood Body Snatching and the Birth of Modern Surgery The surgeon who counted not only luminaries Benjamin Franklin Lord Byron Adam Smith and Thomas Gainsborough among his patients but also “resurrection men” among his close acuaintances A captivating portrait of his ruthless devotion to uncovering the secrets of the human. A book that makes you grateful to experience medicine as it is TODAY35 StarsI m a huge fan of medical non fiction and the history of medicine so naturally I gravitated toward this title I will say this wasn t my favorite that I ve read on the subject and it s a bit early of a timeframe for what I typically am fascinated by I prefer mid to late 19th century medicine but there were definitely a lot of fascinating details strewn throughout this book andothers that were of a rather disturbing nature like the distressing experiments and vivisections John Hunter performed on live animals all in the name of science John Hunter apparently had dissection time than most surgeons of the time mainly due to the measures he d go to acuire bodiesanimals for himself and for his students to have a book to learn from and explore I mean I completely understand that these measures boosted the medical field considerably and especially in the art of surgeryThe sample of the book was what drew me in and I was blown away by that first chapter thinking what a treat if the entire book is written this way well the rest of the book fell a little flat compared to all that the very first chapter had to offer The rest of the story was written in choppy chapters and not tackling the feel of that first chapter transporting me right in the moment The first chapter called The Coach Driver s Knee talked about how in 1785 aneurysms behind the knee were often a death sentence but John Hunter entered the scene at just the right moment and felt confident with his knowledge of the anatomy of the region to be able to repair the injury I won t go into too much detail in case you plandecide to read the book I just mistakenly thought that each consecutive chapter was going to follow various surgeriescases he performedtreated and what their outcomes were But that was not exactly the caseI was just left wanting of that But I guess what came after that first chapter was essentially explaining just how he came to be one of the most sought after surgeons due to his comprehension of anatomy and all the tangle of muscles tendons veins lymph nodes arteries organs that lay just below the surface of our largest organ the skin He believed that only by minutely studying the human body in order to understand the whereabouts and functions of every living part could surgeons possibly hope to improve their skills pg 7 It is rather disheartening at how he arrived at this knowledge though with the book going into great detail of how he made animals suffer to verify how things worked just beneath the skin how organs functioned how injuries healed etc I wish there was another way but I suppose I should be grateful for what these mavericks did for the modernization of surgery and medicine This book was riddled with fascinating tidbits like for example Far from being interlopers in the field of surgery barbers were the first surgeons The earliest organized medical care in medieval times had been centered on monasteries But the church frowned on its devotees spilling blood and so barbers who were freuent visitors to brethren in order to keep tonsures and beards in trim assisted the monks in their medical work by excising warts removing abscesses and letting blood The familiar red and white striped poles outside barbershops are leftover reminders of their erstwhile professions Originally they signified the bandaged and bloodied stick gripped by patients during minor surgical procedures Pg 22And some beautiful descriptions that do help to transport you to that time and place as in As Hunter approached from the northeast through the pleasant villages of Tottenham Islington and Pentonville the rough rutted road became increasingly busy while houses shops and taverns wrestled for space along the way As he neared the city the narrow towering tenements which housed whole families in single cellars and attic rooms almost blocked out the sky Negotiating the congested streets where stagecoaches and private carriages battled for passage with farm carts and livestock seemed hopelessly confusing the sounds of horses hooves creaking wheels and complaining cattle were deafening Mud animal dung refuse and human waste splashed pedestrians as they walked the pavements and tried to dodge the swinging shop signs speeding bearers of sedan chairs and downpours of foul water from upper story windows By late afternoon oil lamps lighted the smoky streets and candles illuminated shop windows displaying silk clothing and exuisite jewelry their luxury forming a pantomime backdrop to the sualor of ragged children begging in the gutters Pg 24A few other excerpts On the treacherous high seas British adventurers were risking their lives to claim uncharted territories for king and country beating off European rivals in the struggle for global domination Success brought not only immediate fortune but lasting fame The victors names would be forever commemorated in some remote mountain or coastal feature The exploration of the human body was no different Across Europe anatomists vied to discover previously unmapped parts of the body staking their claim to a piece of the human interior Intrepid anatomists could be assured of immortality through the parts they described if they did not themselves bestow their names on their discoveries they could be certain their disciples would arrange that honor So in the sixteenth century the followers of Italian professor Gabriello Fallopio ensured his name would live forever after he described the tubes to the uterus His compatriot and contemporary Bartolomeo Eustachio likewise had his name commemorated in the tube running between the nose and the ear And in the following century striking back for England the anatomist Thomas Willis left his name to the Circle of Willis the loops of arteries at the base of the brain Pg 64 Opening a huge sperm whale on a barge on the Thames standing on top of its blubbery carcass as he had in 1759 he noted that the tongue was almost like a feather bed With awe he added The heart and aorta of the spermaceti whale appeared prodigious being too large to be contained in a wide tub the aorta measuring a foot in diameter When we consider this applied to the circulation and figure to ourselves that probably ten or fifteen gallons of blood are thrown out at one stroke and moved with immense velocity through a tube of a foot diameter the whole idea fills the mind with wonder Hunter s poetical descriptions of whales would later be cited as inspiration for Moby Dick Pg 153 John Hunter had spent an anxious spring finalizing plans to transfer his anatomy and natural history collection into its new homeBut at last the work was finished and the remarkable building complete Between the smart four story town house fronting Leicester Suare and the inconspicuous dowdy looking house at its rear facing Castle Street stretched a spectacular brick and glass structure providing a lecture theater grand reception room and a customer built museum Accommodating Hunter s myriad businesses as surgeon anatomist teacher and researcher while also fostering his continuing connections with London s underworld the dual fronted house would later inspire Robert Louis Stevenson when writing his horror story The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Although the plot for the story came to Stevenson in a dream he is said to have based Dr Jekyll s house the setting for the melodramatic transformation from good to evil on Hunter s Leicester Suare home In the Gothic tale written in 1886 when the house was still a familiar London landmark the honest Dr Jekyll had bought his house was still a familiar London landmark the honest Dr Jekyll had bought his house from the heirs of a celebrated surgeon Stevenson described the visitors who entered the doctor s home being led across a yard toward a lecture theater was from the old dissecting room door which opened onto a dingy thoroughfare at the rear of the house that the grim faced Mr Hyde emerged to commit his murderous deeds Pg 218 Enthusiastic young surgeons rushed to the Castle Street entrance to enroll for the autumn 1785 lectures which began on October 10 After hanging their hats on the pegs ranged in the lobby they signed the pupil s register which was kept on a desk beside the door to the lecture theatre James Parkinson who would later publish the first description of the shaking palsy that later bore his name was one of the students in 1785 his notes would form one of the most comprehensive records of Hunter s lectures Pg 222 When Edward Jenner tested his smallpox vaccine on an eight year old boy in 1796 thus establishing the practice of vaccination which would save millions of lives he was studiously following his tutor s principles When Joseph Lister tried out his carbolic soaked lint in eleven patients in 1867 thus launching antiseptic practices that would prevent countless deaths he was purposefully adopting his hero s methods And numberless pioneering surgeons down the years would similarly follow Hunter s scientific principles in helping to render surgery safe and effective Pg
