Objective: As in many places in the world, surgical practices in the Ottoman Empire as well were performed not by physicians but surgeons. Even it seems that males from their appearance have dominated medicine and surgery, the literature shows that the appearances of female physicians and surgeons date back to old times. In this Study, based on the knowledge achieved on Saliha Hatun, lived in the 17th century and known with the name Kupeli, and on documents available in Uskudar Shari'a Court Records, consent notes of surgical interventions were evaluated in this study.
