Guy De Chauliac was born on 1300 in Chaulhac, French, is Surgeon and Physician. Guy de Chauliac was a popular surgeon of the Early Medieval Period. After completing his Master’s in medicine, he rapidly ascended to the position of physician and surgeon within a matter of few years. Apart from being a doctor and surgeon of great repute in France, he was also a personal physician to three different Popes. His famous work in Latin, called “Chirurgia Magna”, states the basics of surgery and covers ulcers, anesthesia, plasters and drugs. These were covered over an elaborate ‘seven-volume’ collection that was also translated into various languages for the accessibility of other surgeons. Apart from his famous works, Chauliac was also known as the man who ‘dared’. He dared to treat and serve patients afflicted with ‘Pestilences’ when all other doctors fled with fear. Among the first to describe and differentiate the two types of plagues, Guy de Chauliac took great pride in his work. He was also known as the ‘Father of Surgery’ and was an example of a surgeon who ‘bore his torch’ with flair and precision.
