From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Lizars (c. 1787-1860) was a Scottish surgeon. He was professor of surgery at Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, who performed the first ovariotomy in Britain in 1825. Besides authoring an early work on the dangers of tobacco, The Use and Abuse of Tobacco, Lizars published a number of important and beautifully illustrated anatomical texts in the early nineteenth century.
