The Cure of Rupture, Reducible and Irreducible

George Heaton


Excerpt from The Cure of Rupture, Reducible and Irreducible: Also of Varicocele and Hydrocele, by New Methods

In the following pages I offer to the profession some of the results of a life devoted to the study and relief of hernia and kindred diseases. Hernia is a subject which has engaged the earnest attention of many able minds, but heretofore without great practical advance towards a permanent cure of the malady. The belief that this desirable result has at last been attained, now that sufficient time has been taken to test the reality of the cures, is the chief motive for this publication.

I intended to have published a volume on this subject in connection with my only son, Dr. Charles W. Heaton, but his premature death, in 1868, from disease contracted in the U. S. Army during our late war, prevented the fulfillment of my long cherished wishes.
