For those not just playing one, Happy Doctors’ Day!
Doctors’ Day is a national observance to honor those committed to the care and treatment of our health. It also marks the anniversary of a major medical advancement – the first use of anesthesia in surgery. On March 30, 1842, Dr. Crawford Long first used gas to sedate a patient while removing a tumor from his neck in Jefferson, Georgia. Previously, surgeries were performed with little to relieve pain.
On this day, we want to recognize doctors and their dedication to the practice of medicine.
