Background information on fourteenth-century French surgeon Guy de Chauliac is presented. The author reviews how De Chauliac is considered the most influential medical figure of the fourteenth century. He was a surgeon who served popes and kings but who also provided care to many victims of the plagues that devastated medieval Europe. His most significant legacy, however, consists of his multi-part treatise "Chirurgia magna." It remained the principle surgical textbook used in European medical schools for three centuries. Information on De Chauliac's birth and education is reviewed.
