Excerpt from Diseases of the Ovaries: Their Diagnosis and Treatment

It is now twenty-four years since I first attempted Ovariotomy. During this time I have offered to my professional brethren no less than three books upon the subject, each of them marking a stage in the progress of the operation.

The first book was published in 1864, when everything was tentative, facts were accumulating, and the bases of the rules of future action were being laid down. It was rather the fulfilment of a pledge to record all that I did, so as to furnish the means of judging how far my proceedings were justified, than a guide for other practitioners. It contained many useful lessons, and opened up for discussion almost all the important practical questions.

My second book, which appeared in 1872, was the result of much larger experience, and gave me the opportunity of speaking with more authority on points which I had been able to study, and of laying before the profession the views and mode of practice which I had then adopted. The weight of its evidence definitely settled all doubts as to the utility of Ovariotomy, and stimulated into activity many coadjutors. Ovariotomy is no longer an isolated part of surgery.
