Astley cooper: his life and surgical contributions.
Summary of "Astley cooper: his life and surgical contributions."
Sir Astley Paston Cooper (1768-1841) was a successful and influential British surgeon during the early decades of the 19th century. He was a dedicated anatomist, an accomplished researcher, an inspiring teacher, and a skillful surgeon. Cooper published about the cause and treatment of Dupuytren's disease 10 years before Dupuytren. His contributions were widespread and substantially advanced the understanding and treatment of breast disease, vascular aneurysms, and abdominal wall hernias, along with orthopedic, otologic, and hand surgery. His contributions to surgical science have endured and are being used today.
