#ExhibitionIslam •Surgery•

Many muslim physicians such as Al Zahrawi and Ibn Sina also practiced surgery. As early as the tenth century , muslims surgeons initiated the use of fine sutures and invented the soporific sponge which was the precusor of modern anaesthesia. Muslim surgeons were also applying purified alcohol to wounds as an antiseptic agent.

The first european use of antiseptic in surgery was some eight centuries later by the British surgeon Joseph Lister in 1865.

The use of specialised surgical instruments was another revolutianary concept introduced by Al Zahrawi that transformed this field of medicine and laid the foundations of modern surgery throughout the world!

His famous treatise called Al Tasrif contained a staggering collection of over 200 instruments used for surgery. Amazingly, the basic design of many of these instruments have not changed today and would be difficult to distinguish laid besdies their modern counterparts.
