World Anesthesia Day is October 16, and commemorates the beginning of modern anesthesia as we know it today. On October 16 1846, a young Boston dentist named William Morton gave the first successful public demonstration of painless surgery using ether; removing a tumour from a young man’s neck in Boston, Massachusetts.
