Charles-Emmanuel Sédillot


French military physician, surgeon and a pioneer of urethrotomic and gastrotomic operations, known for his work with dislocations and his treatment of pyaemia. He is credited with coining the term "microbe" (from micros "small" and bios "life").

He was the son of orientalist Jean Jacques Emmanuel Sédillot (1777–1832), and an older brother to historian Louis-Pierre-Eugène Sédillot.

He studied surgery under Alexis Boyer and Philibert Joseph Roux. In 1836 he became professor of operative surgery at Val-de-Grâce, followed by a professorship at Strasbourg five years later.

Sedillot died on 29 January 1883, aged 78, in Sainte-Menehould.
