DOUGLAS, John (lithotomist)
Lithotomia Douglassiana; or, an account of a new method of making the high operation, in order to extract the stone out of the bladder.London: T. Woodward, 1720.
Douglas accused Cheselden of plagiarizing his work, although the latter had acknowledged his indebtedness to Douglas. It is possible that this was the reason which prompted Cheselden to drop the high operation in favor of lateral lithotomy.
