In designing the first permanent theatre for public anatomical dissections, at Padua university where he had succeeded Fallopio as professor of surgery and anatomy, Fabrizio revolutionized anatomic teaching, attracting William Harvey and Adriaan van den Spiegel as pupils. He was also a pioneer in the field of embryology. This finely printed eighteenth-century edition of his works includes finely engraved copper plate engravings depicting surgical instruments and the famous, and rather terrifying, orthopaedic correction suit. Wellcome III, p.4. Folio
