Abstract

The goal of this project is to study the medical advances of the French barber Surgeon Ambroise Pare, and discuss the innovative techniques and discoveries he introduced during the Renaissance. Pare’s discoveries helped progress multiple fields including obstetrics and surgery, and this project will delve into his inventions such as ligatures, antiseptic, and artificial limbs. The practices introduced by Pare not only led to a decrease in the loss of soldiers’ lives during the Renaissance period, but also helped to advance the medical field towards what todays generation perceives as modern medicine.
