James Syme, 1799-1870, teacher and father-in-law of Lister, was one of the greatest of the Scottish surgeons. He is remembered for his method of amputation at the ankle, for his speedy adoption of anesthesia end antisepsis, and for his 1831 treatise on the excision of diseased joints, that popularized this conservative technique over amputation.
