Édouard Kirmisson (circa 1910)


French surgeon, a specialist in pediatric and orthopedic surgery, known for "Kirmisson's operation" and "Kirmisson's sign."

Kirmisson studied medicine at the École de Médecine in Paris, and later worked as an externe under Noël Guéneau de Mussy (1813–1885) at the Hôtel-Dieu. In 1879 he earned his medical doctorate, obtaining his agrégation in 1883. He spent the following years as a surgeon of Parisian hospitals, becoming a professor of pediatric surgery and orthopedics at Hôpital des Enfants-Malades in 1901.

In 1890 Kirmisson founded the journal "Revue d’orthopédie". In 1903 he became a member of the Académie de Médecine.

He died on Binic, Côtes-d'Armor, on 22 September 1927, aged 79.
