The Evolution of Surgical Instruments is the first comprehensive work on the subject published in over sixty years and arguably the most important general history of surgical instruments ever published. The only prior work on the subject, C. J. S. Thompson's The History and Evolution of Surgical Instruments (1942) attempted to cover the entire history in only 113 pages. Elisabeth Bennion's Antique Medical Instruments (1979) concentrated chiefly upon the aesthetic aspects of medical and surgical instruments to 1870. James Edmonson's comprehensive history, American Surgical Instruments (1997), focused on instruments manufactured in the United States up to 1900.

The Berlin relief sculpture of a physician, a Greek dedicatory relief from the late 1st century BC, comes from the old Venetian Grimani collection and was purchased by the Berlin Royal Museums at the beginning of the 19th century. It shows the heroic figure of a physician receiving sacrifices from his admirers, together with a case with surgical instruments. Among the Late Hellenic grave and dedicatory reliefs this is a unique combination, in which -supported by relevant pictorial material - four separate domains are addressed: antique collections in 16th and 17th century Venice, heroic cults of private individuals in Hellenic Greece, the status and honouring of physicians in Antiquity, surgical instruments and operating techniques in Antiquity.
