The relationship between art, medicine and surgery has always been a fertile source of discussion and debate. This book, like its predecessor Medicine and Art, evolved from a series of articles written by Alan EH Emery on art and medicine in Clinical Medicine, the journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London. In this volume, however, the authors have concentrated their attention on treatment not only in medicine but also in surgery.
Each artwork, reproduced in full colour, is accompanied by an essay tracing the history of medicine and surgery from Ancient Egypt to the present day. The essays describe the relevance of each work of art and also details the artists themselves making this book an invaluable resource and a unique treasure trove of information for all who share the authors' love of art, history, medicine and surgery.
This beautifully produced book will be a source of amusement and interest for everyone with a passion for art, or a fascination for the development of medicine over the centuries. Within the book are 65 illustrations from many well-known, and less well-known artists and illustrators including works by Susan Macfarlane

Surgical and Medical Treatment in Art, by Alan and Marcia Emery, is a successful sequel to their Medicine and Art ... Accompanying each plate is a concise discussion of the art work and the artist's relationship to medicine and, often, brief historical consideration of the medical subject ... I recommend Surgical and Medical Treatment in Art enthusiastically to medical students and physicians in training and practice. I hope this series will continue.
