Cerrahiyetü’l-Haniyye is a work that has an important place in the history of Turkish medicine. The work which has been written by Şerefeddin Sabuncuoğlu (1385-1468?), a physician and surgeon from Amasya, gives us peerless information about the medical practices from 15th century Anatolia. The work is actually a surgical treatise and consists of three chapters: cauterization treatments, surgical procedures, and fractures and dislocations. Information related with almost every medical specialty of modern-day medicine appears in Cerrahiyetü’l-Haniyye. Medical treatment options (creams, pomades, ointments, lotions) were also discussed in detail in the work.
