A Pirate Surgeon's Instruments and Procedures
When I first started looking for information on surgery during the Golden Age of Piracy (~1680 - 1725). Finding none, I started researching information to write my own which led to creating this part of my website. Here you will find information on surgical procedures and instruments from that era. Since it drives me crazy when people modernize the text, I have attempted to preserve as much of the original text as possible.
