pdf epub fb2 djvu



Hugh Cairns was born in Australia and came to Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar to read medicine. He worked as a neurosurgeon in London and with Harvey Cushing at Harvard before setting up the Nuffield Department of Surgery in Oxford, in which he became the first Nuffield Professor of Surgery. In chronicalling the life of this extraordinary individual, this book provides a fascinating insight into the development of neurosurgery as a specialty, the formation of the University of Oxford Medical School, and the treatment of head injuries during the Second World War. This biography will be of interest to surgeons, particularly neurosurgeons interested in the development of neurosurgery as a specialty field.
