From the time of Hippocrates, surgery has ever been the salvation of inner medicine. In inner medicine physicians have dwelt too much on dogmas, opinions and speculations; and too often their errors passed undiscovered to the grave. The surgeon, for his good, has had a sharper training on facts; his errors hit him promptly in the face.
