Why are we called The Cooper Clinic?
The 1st recorded vasectomy was performed on a dog by Sir Astley Paston Cooper, the accomplished surgeon and anatomist. In 1830 he published Observations on the Structure and Diseases of the Testis. This was the first time much medical attention was paid to the tube that carries sperm – The Vas Deferens. Cooper performed several experimental surgeries on dogs to investigate the anatomy further.
