Abu al-Qasim Al Zahrawi (Albucasis) - Father of surgery

Heres some History

Abu al-Qasim Khalaf ibn al-Abbas Al-Zahrawi (936 - 1013), (Arabic: أبو القاسم بن خلف بن العباس الزهراوي) also known in the West as Abulcasis, was an Andalusian-Arab physician, and scientist. He is considered the "father of modern surgery"[1] and as Islam's greatest medieval surgeon, whose comprehensive medical texts, combining Islamic medicine and Greco-Roman teachings, shaped both Islamic and European surgical procedures up until the Renaissance. His greatest contribution to history is the Al-Tasrif, a thirty-volume collection of medical practices.
