The Domus of the Surgeon is a Roman house of the second half of the II century, discovered in Rimini in Piazza Luigi Ferrari in 1989, and open to the public on 7 December 2007.
The surgical instruments found in Rimini represent today the richest surgical collection in the world,
for variety and number of objects: in fact, it is about 150 pieces used to intervene on wounds and bone
traumas, plus a series of jars used for the preparation and the storage of medicines.
Various surgical instruments, probes, tweezers, dental pincers, orthopedic levers, a mobile-arm drill and various irons used to export urinary stones stand out in the surgical set.
The type of surgical instruments indicates that the Rimini surgeon specialized in the military medical profession.
