      EVENT DETAILS
      Victorian Surgery Demonstration Talk

      Join this surgical demonstration presented within the original architecture of the old operating theatre of St. Thomas’s Hospital of 1822. Before the advent of anaesthesia, an operation had to be swift. Without hand-washing or antiseptics, the chance of later infection was high. You will experience the talk from the point of view of a 19th century medical student, or maybe even the patient! Join our wonderful speakers as they take you back in time and explain how surgery was done in the Victorian Era. Information: This event is not recommended for young children due to the nature of the topic Visitors will have time to look around the museum after the talk Access is through a 52-step spiral staircase Please note that the Museum does not have visitor toilet facilities Advance registration is required for this event. Tickets: £7.00.  Doors will open at 10:30 am for an 11:00 am start for the talk. This talk is part of London MED+ Festival: Getting London Excited About Medicine.
