Join this surgical demonstration presented within the original architecture of the old operating theatre of St. Thomas’s Hospital of 1822. Before the advent of anaesthesia, an operation had to be swift. Without hand-washing or antiseptics, the chance of later infection was high.
You will experience the talk from the point of view of a 19th century medical student, or maybe even the patient! Join our wonderful speakers as they take you back in time and explain how surgery was done in the Victorian Era.
