 Ancient Egyptian Medicine - Smith Papyrus - Ebers Papyrus
The practice of medicine was fairly advanced in Ancient Egypt, with Egyptian physicians having a wide and excellent reputation.
The Egyptians thought that most illnesses - at least those caused by no obvious accident - were the work of hostile powers: 'an adversary male or female, a spirit or a dead person' and it was for this reason that magicians, as well as physicians were concerned with curing the ills of the populace.
Doctors and other medical personnel kept detailed notes (on papyrus) describing the condition encountered, and the treatment applied in all areas of medicine, including gynecology, bone surgery and eye complaints, the latter of which was very frequent in the dry, dusty climate of the country.
