Disturbing Vintage Medical Illustrations That Will Shock You

Back in the 19th century (long before any form of multimedia existed) the principles and practices of surgery had to be illustrated to help educate and inform those wishing to forge a career in the medical field. From individual surgical techniques to the types of instruments and devices used - each graphic illustration served as an engrossing and accurate portrayal of the approach and methodology to medicine during that era.

These 19th century depictions of various medical procedures were recently collated and published by medical historian Richard Barnett in his book 'An Illustrated Treatise on the Principles & Practice of Nineteenth-Century Surgery. It serves as a fascinating and equally morbid insight into the ever changing world of medicine and man's approach to prolonging life itself.
