Cased Surgical Sets

Surgical, Amputation, Veterinary, and Neurosurgical Cased Sets

The European instrument making skills and advanced surgical techniques are obvious from the extensive sets available during the 1700 to middle 1800's.  As you will note in the various sets on display, the surgical intervention available varied widely from the usual limited amputation choice.  The French in particular were very adventurous in their surgical scope and developed many of the techniques which pioneered corrective as opposed to amputative surgery.
