History Fact

The fastest surgeon ever ended up causing a 300% mortality rate.

Before anesthesia, speed was essential when performing surgery to minimize pain to the patient, and also to ensure they didn’t have as much chance to writhe about during surgery.

Surgeon Robert Liston was considered “the fastest knife in the West”. He was a pioneer in speed-surgery.

One time, when performing a battlefield amputation in front of a group of spectators, Liston cut through his patient’s leg so quickly that he accidentally cut the fingers off his assistant.

One man who witnessed the surgery was also caught by the doctor’s knife. Upon feeling it tug on his coat and seeing blood splash on him, he collapsed and died of a heart attack.

Then, to make matters worse, Liston’s patient and his assistant died of blood poisoning from their joint-amputation.

This made Liston the only surgeon ever to have performed a surgery with a 300% mortality rate!
