He performed the first successful pulmonary embolectomy in 1924 and made significant contributions to vascular surgery, plastic surgery, and orthopedic surgery, and to anesthesiology. He published articles on a wide range of surgical topics, contributed to eight surgical textbooks, and edited five medical journals.
