The History of Pediatric Surgery in Germany

  • W. Ch. Hecker
Part of the Progress in Pediatric Surgery book series (PEDIATRIC, volume 20)


The present has developed from the past, and the future will go forth from the present. Thus yesterday, today, and tomorrow constitute a dynamic whole. If the direction of future developments is to be recognized correctly, it is not only necessary for the present to be interpreted correctly, but also necessary to realize how the present has grown out of the past. Hence, the course of medical history indicates the foundation of future medicine.
