William of Saliceto in his time was the premier surgeon of Bologna, who wrote a textbook of medicine before he published his Surgery in 1275. Although he was trained as a cleric, he is not known to have been active as a priest. His skill, wisdom and conservative practices are clearly exposed in his treatises, and made him famous as a teacher. His prime pupil was Lanfranchi of Milan, who carried William's methods into France.

Dr. Rosenman is a retired Surgeon and Professor of Surgery in San Francisco, CA. An interest in the rebirth of surgery in medieval Europe has led to translations of seven of the eight seminal treatises written during the 150 years after 1170 A.D. Although all have appeared in other modern-language editions, only one was in English. Now all of the eight will be available for study by English-reading students. The text by William of Saliceto is the fourth in the series.
