This section is for snippets depicting the history of Thoracic Surgery.

Attached is the notes from a International Thoracic Surgery Meeting in 1950. Note the job listings on page five.

History of Thoracic Surgery (in Iran) – in honor of one of my favorite Thoracic surgeons. Quite an interesting read – and a reminder that modern medicine/ surgery originated in the middle east.

History of thoracic surgery and the Southern Thoracic Surgical Association – a paper presented on the anniversary of the organization.

The series of articles, “The mid-century revolution in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery” by A. P. Naef are an excellent and interesting overview on the history of cardiothoracic surgery. But, then again, Dr. Naef sounds like a pretty fascinating guy in his own right.  Part three is my personal favorite in this series..
