Birth: Oct. 13, 1854
Highland
Madison County
Illinois, USA
Death: May 22, 1907

Physician. One of the nation's most eminent surgeons of his time, Bernays was equally famous as a contributor to the literature of anatomy and surgery. A series of monographs entitled "Chips From a Surgeon's Workshop" recorded the progress of his work. Dr. Bernays performed the first successful Caesarian section in St. Louis in 1889. He went on to perform the first successful coeliotomy (organ or body cavity surgery) and the first successful gallstone operations in Missouri. Bernays was made Professor of Anatomy in the College of Physicians and Surgeons of St. Louis before the age of 29. He later became Professor of Anatomy and Surgical Pathology in the Marion-Sims College of Medicine and the Woman's Medical College (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
