In the latter half of the 19th century, Europe was inundated with some of the great pioneers in the field of surgery. Names such as Billroth, and Courvoisier are still very much part of today’s surgical lexicon. Germany specifically was a site for some of these revolutionary surgeons, contributing such notaries as Kocher and Langenbuch. Amidst these giants however, history has almost completely lost the surgeon responsible for one of the most common general surgical procedures.
