Ernest Amory Codman: The End Result of a Life in Medicine

Front Cover
Saunders, 2000 - Medical - 195 pages
Here's the first book- length biography of Ernest A. Codman (1869-1940), "father of shoulder surgery" and pioneer in outcomes research. This book vividly recalls Codman's career, including his breakthrough idea that patients' progress should be followed long enough to determine if their treatments are working. This biography also chronicles the development of the first radiology department, the first anesthetic record, and Codman's creation of the first tumor registry, "The Registry of Bone Sarcoma."
