Eugene Fuller, MD
1858 - 1930
Eugene Fuller, MD was born in 1858 and graduated from Harvard Medical School. He practiced most of his professional life in New York City.
Dr. Fuller published Disorders of the Male Sexual Organs in 1895. He was an instructor of genitourinary and venereal diseases at the New York Postgraduate Medical School. He was the first to accomplish the removal of both intravesical and intraurethral enlargement of the prostate using the suprapubic approach. Dr. Fuller's technique gave way to the perineal approach pioneered by Hugh Hampton Young, MD, but he is still considered a leading historical figure for his advances in prostate surgery.
