From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paul von Bruns (1846-1916)

Paul von Bruns (July 2, 1846 – June 2, 1916) was a German surgeon who was born in Tübingen. He was the son of surgeon Victor von Bruns (1812-1883), and son-in-law to Protestant theologian Karl Heinrich Weizsäcker (1822-1899).

In 1882 Bruns became director of the surgical clinic at Tübingen, as well as a full professor at the University. He is remembered for his research in the field of laryngology, and his work involving goiters and limb operations.

In 1885 he founded Beiträge zur klinischen Chirurgie (Contributions to Clinical Surgery), and was its editor until his death. With Ernst von Bergmann (1836-1907) and Jan Mikulicz-Radecki (1850-1905), he published the four-volume Handbuch der Chirurgie (Handbook of Surgery).
