Ovariotomy soon occupied a complex position within medicine and society, as an operation which symbolised surgical progress, while also remaining at the boundaries of ethical acceptability.
Chapter One: Introduction.- Chapter Two: Pathologies, Actions, Ideas.- Chapter Three: Representations of Practice.- Chapter Four: Patent Concerns, Unpatentable Procedures.- Chapter Five: The Business of Surgery.- Chapter Six: The Afterlife of an Operation.- Chapter Seven: Conclusion.
