"Philibert Joseph Roux (1780-1854), a French surgeon, was a student and friend of Marie Xavier Francois Bichat, the father of modern pathology and histology. He was assigned as a surgeon to the Hopital Beaujon (1806), the Hopital de la Charite (1810) and to Hotel-Dieu de Paris (1835), where he succeeded to Guillaume Dupuyrten, a French anatomist, as a Chief Surgeon. Roux is best known for having performed the surgical repair of a cleft palate and for having been the first surgeon to stitch a ruptured female perineum. His contribution to surgery has also included the publication of Quarante annees de pratique chirurgicale. Roux was awarded the grade of Chevalier of the National Order of the Legion of Honor and that of Officer. He also served as a President of the Academy of Sciences. He died of a stroke on 3 March 1854." – U.S. National Library of Medicine. Garrison, History of Medicine, p. 490; Castiglioni p. 715.
