Sauerbruch was one of the greatest surgeons in the history of medicine. His development of a pressure chamber early in the 20 th century proved that diseases of the chest were operable, and largely as a result of his accomplishment, thoracic surgery was soon on a par with abdominal surgery. He performed the first successful extirpation of a cancer of the lung, was a pioneer in the surgery of the esophagus and the heart, and was an outstanding experimenter and teacher.
