John (1728–1793). “Founder of scientific surgery.” Born in England, he learned dissection from his brother William and then acquired extensive knowledge of gunshot wounds in the army, of which he was later appointed surgeon-general. Upon retiring from the army, he practiced surgery and lectured on anatomy and surgery. His merit rests with the sound pathologic reasons upon which his surgical procedures were based. Hunter was also the first to study teeth scientifically. In 1783 he was elected a member of the Royal Society of Medicine and of the Royal Academy of Surgery at Paris.
