Read the intro carefully......


""William Halsted was one of the founders of Johns Hopkins Hospital. He's often credited as the inventor of modern surgery for his pioneering use of anesthesia and sterilized operating rooms. During his distinguished 45-year career, he was among the first American surgeons to perform a blood transfusion, remove a gall bladder or do a mastectomy. He was also, for more than three decades, addicted to morphine, a close chemical cousin of heroin, which impaired his professional and personal lives so little that only his closest associates knew about it.""
