By Nuttall, P.Austin.
One whose occupation is to cure or alleviate injuries and diseases of the body by manual operations.
By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
One who practises surgery. The surgeon, says Celsus, ought to be young, or, at all events, not advanced in life. His band must be steady, expert, and never tremulous: he must use the right or left with equal facility: bis sight must be clear and penetrating: his mind intrepid; and, although unmoved when he proceeds to operate, he must not be in haste, nor cut less than is necessary, but finish bis operation, as if the cries of the patient made no impression upon him. In the middle ages, the Universities of Italy and Spain sent out educated surgeons, as well as physicians, under the name chirurgi-physici.
