James Marion Sims (1813–1883) and the First Fistula Hospital
C. Lee Buxton (1968) wrote: “Dynamic, vital, imaginative, sometimes contentious, always filled with dedication to a burning mission, this ever gentlemany physician by professional and personal attributes of permanent quality, helped create gynaecology as a speciality. His dramatic surgical success with vesico-vaginal fistula is the accomplishment for which he is best known, but the qualities of stubborn dedication and persistence revealed in his quest for success in this operation, are a more profound revelation of the man than the operation itself.”
