  The Hippocratic Wound Healer
The Hippocratic doctor, who was both a physician and a surgeon, employed all his senses: smell and taste of secreted body fluids, palpation and auscultation and of course vision.
Wounds on the face and ears were very common, especially after the fall of Athens to the Spartans when boxing became very popular; the hands of the boxers were covered by sphairai (vicious cutting gloves) and aimed at the head of the opponent.
In cases of a cut in the face the flesh was stitched in a way comparable to the modern practice, by using a bronze needle and a thread that was previously bathing in hot oil thus reducing the danger of sepsis.

"Hippocratic medicine" and "Ideological medicine" wish to be, obviously, significant expressions and claim to condense trends, by means of the use of two adjectives, one of which refers to a "father" of rational and individual medicine, while the other is derived from a noun (ideology) in common use, the meaning of which is well known.
By Hippocratic medicine can be designated a trend of thought and medical practice which finds not only in the oath attributed to Hippocrates, but also particularly in the scientific and professional approach of the great Greek physician, one of the most ancient and complete representations.
The technical insufficiencies of the Hippocratic age are obviously enormous and inevitably limit the field of investigations.

 Hippocrates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Writings attributed to him (Corpus hippocraticum, or "Hippocratic writings") rejected the superstition and magic of primitive "medicine" and laid the foundations of medicine as a branch of science.
Other Hippocratic writings associated personality traits with the relative abundance of the four humours in the body: phlegm, yellow bile, fl bile, and blood, and was a major influence on Galen and later on medieval medicine.
The Hippocratic Corpus is a collection of about sixty treatises, most written between 430 BC and AD 200.

Necrosis of the jaw, with œdematous swelling of the face and neck,
The pain and swelling increased on the right half of the face, speedily bringing it into the same condition as the half first affected.
All the teeth upon the right side of the jaw have loosened and fallen out; besides several openings upon the outside of the face, that were freely discharging pus, there were two or three inside of the mouth, from which there issued a large quantity also, and which led directly to the diseased bone.

 Antiqua Medicina: Hippocrates
The so-called Hippocratic Oath was unquestionably the exemplar for medical etiquette for centuries, and it endures in modified form to this day.
A second discrepancy between the Oath and general Hippocratic principles is the ban on suicide.
It is ironic that the Hippocratic Oath in its present form with its religious subtext is associated with Hippocrates, the man who first separated medicine from religion and disease from supernatural explanations.

The Hippocratic physician would reassure his patient and ask about any changes in his/her recent past in travels, mode of work, interactions with others, diet, and body eliminations.

 NOVA Online | Survivor M.D. | The Hippocratic Oath Today
The Hippocratic Oath (see ancient and modern versions) is one of the oldest binding documents in history.
Perhaps most telling, while the classical oath calls for "the opposite" of pleasure and fame for those who transgress the oath, fewer than half of oaths taken today insist the taker be held accountable for keeping the pledge.
Indeed, a growing number of physicians have come to feel that the Hippocratic Oath is inadequate to address the realities of a medical world that has witnessed huge scientific, economic, political, and social changes, a world of legalized abortion, physician-assisted suicide, and pestilences unheard of in Hippocrates' time.

 Antiqua Medicina :: Hippocrates
His concern was with the physician’s duties rather than his “rights.” Hence, the greatest legacy of Hippocrates: the Hippocratic Oath.
The Oath also concurs with Pythagorean prohibitions against surgical procedures of all kinds and against the shedding of blood, in which the soul was thought to reside.
Again, this interdiction against the knife is especially out of keeping with the several treatises in the Hippocratic Corpus that deal at length with surgical techniques and operating room procedures.

This second volume of Hippocratic citations found in the Corpus Galenicum follows a first one devoted to citations from Hippocrates in Galen's Commentaries and Glossary and covers those in the rest of Galen's works, including the old pseudo-Galenic treatises.
The writings are referred to not by their Latin titles but by the abbreviations that appear in Liddell-Scott-Jones, which were previously used in the Index Hippocraticus and which are by now the standard ones used in almost every work dealing with the Corpus Hippocraticum.
