Many developments in orthopedic surgery have resulted from experiences during wartime.
On the battlefields of the Middle Ages the injured were treated with bandages soaked in horses’ blood which dried
to form a stiff, but unsanitary, splint.
Originally, the term orthopedics meant the correcting of musculoskeletal deformities in children.
Nicolas Andry, a French professor at the University of Paris coined the term in the first textbook written on the subject in 1741.
He advocated the use of exercise, manipulation and splinting to treat deformities in children.
His book was directed towards parents, and while some topics would be familiar to orthopedists today,
it also included ‘excessive sweating of the palms’ and freckles.
