The great Russion surgeon Nikolay Ivanovich Pirogov (1810-1881).
In 2010 we celebrated a great date in the world history of medicine--the bicentenary of Nikolay Ivanovich Pirogov, the greatest Russian surgeon and one of the greatest military surgeons of all times, the founder of Surgical (or Topographical) Anatomy and experimental branch of Surgery, a co-founder of Military-field surgery, an educator and a social figure, a man of daring humanistic ideals. Each aspect of his fruitful activities is by itself a subject of special scientific investigation and deep studies.
