— a deaf surgeon in Spain
There was a deaf surgeon in Spain. A surgeon that operates on
people? This deaf surgeon worked in the 16th century, but the
job was different from today’s surgeons. In these early days
surgeons were also barbers that used their sharp tools to do
some medical operations. And that job did not require a college
degree. That deaf surgeon was the father of Miguel de Cervantes
who wrote the very famous book – Don Quixote!
