The continuous search for very fine tools to achieve a high level of accuracy was a rule of Islamic practice, as it is the basic rule in modern science today, and in the tenth century, specifically in southern Spain, there was an accomplished surgeon called Aba Al-Qasim Khalaf Ibn Al - Abbas Al-Zahrawi, author of the book "Al-Tasrif."

This development of surgical tools was a revolutionary concept because it transformed medicine from contemplation to experimentation , and since the images of surgical tools some of their shapes were carved in the graves of ancient Egypt, Al-Zahrawi's article on surgical tools was the first in the history of medicine to describe surgical tools in detail, explain how to use them, and explain the circumstances. Which are used.
Al-Zahrawi's design of surgical instruments was so accurate that most of them had only undergone slight changes during a thousand years, and it was these explanations that laid the foundations for surgery in Europe after Al-Zahrawi's books were translated into Latin and spread in universities and European medical circles.
Al-Zahrawi revolutionized the world of surgery by introducing new procedures and innovative surgical tools. An example of the tools invented by Al-Zahrawi is the kidney and gallbladder stone fragmentation tool.
