 A.D

Hua Tuo also known by the name of Yuan Hua, live in the county of Hao in Anwei province. He was the first and well known Chinese surgeon during his time and was accredited as the first in the world to developed the use of anesthesia and also expand the limited knowledge of anatomy among the Chinese.  When combining the use of acupuncture and herbs, he always prefer to treat using simple methods where a small number of acupuncture points are administered and herbal formulas comprised the use of a few herbs.

He encouraged the practice of Qi Gong to improve and condition the human body and also taught the "frolics of the five animals" i.e. the Tiger, Deer, Bear, Ape and Crane, a practice which is still in use today.

One day a patient came to see Hua Tuo for treatment. Hua Tuo diagnosed the patient was suffering from Ulcerative Colitis (bleeding ulcer in the large intestine). He thus decided that surgery was needed. He gave the patient "anesthetic powder" which makes the patient loose feeling and he performed the operation. He cut the abdomen open and located the ulcer in the intestines. After treating the infected area he sewed it back and applied "Spirits Lotion". A month later the patient recovered completely.

His life was shortened by the visit of Zao Cao, a famous General who was suffering from "Tou Feng" (brain disease). After diagnosing his patient,  Hua Tuo suggested an operation is necessary but unfortunately, the uninformed General who had never heard of surgery thought Hua Tuo wanted to harm him and immediately put Hua Tuo to death thus ending his profession which was a great loss to the world.
