He stayed at Guy's where he filled roles such as demonstrator of anatomy, assistant surgeon and surgeon. In a series of lectures given at the Royal College and collected in the present book, Hilton introduced a new concept in the treatment of surgical disorders by urging removal only of those tissues which hindered nature's own healing process and by advocating rest as essential in this process.
