Excerpt from The Cleveland Medical Journal, Vol. 4: January, 1905
Though a surgeon possesses a natural tendency towards handicraft in matters therapeutic, I do not wish to be considered as one who distorts neurological problems by viewing them with an Operative strabismus uncorrected by the proper lenses. I wish merely, so far as my time allows, to point out some Of the present possibilities of affording surgical relief in certain maladies for which the outlook is otherwise most forlorn, and at the same time to lay stress on certain points that give us hope for the future. I shall keep away, so far as possible, from beaten paths; for that a cerebral abscess should be evacuated, a ruptured meningeal vessel tied. The spinal cord relieved from pressure, and a severed nerve sutured, has long needed no comment.
