Excerpt from On Rupture, Inguinal, Crural, and Umbilical: The Anatomy, Pathology, Diagnosis, Cause and Prevention; With New Methods of Effecting a Radical and Permanent Cure; Embodying the Jacksonian Prize Essay of the Royal College of Surgeons, London, for 1861
Like many oth... er diseases which the profession has pronounced incurable, it has been the fate of ruptures to fall into the hands of unscrupulous men, who in every age have Obtained a spurious reputation for curing a disease which is not to be distinguished except by experienced surgeons from many others easily curable, and concerning which it is not in some cases easy to decide whether it be cured or no. Both one way and the other the public have been repeatedly deceived, and professional men are naturally placed in an attitude of suspicion towards all such attempts to remove the stigma of impotence which in too many instances is fixed upon their art.
