Description
 
Deborah Kuhn McGregor (au). Examines the development of modern medical treatment of women & the related history of women’s health in the mid-1800s. It looks not only at the medical figures who devised & practiced the innovative therapies, but also at the history of the patient experience in the development & the professionalization of a medical specialty. In exploring the controversial career of J. Marion Sims, “the father of gynecology,” & the history of the Woman’s Hospital of the State of New York, the book chronicles the emergence of a practice involving previously untried medical techniques & the use of experimentation on patients according to a social hierarchy based on race & sex. Illustrated.
