Joseph-Alexis Stoltz


French obstetrician credited for introducing into French obstetrics the technique of induced premature labor in cases of dangerous parturition. He also made improvements to the obstetrical forceps. He was the author of many papers in the fields of obstetrics, gynecology and pediatrics, and penned the introduction to Hermann Franz Naegele's Traité pratique de l'art des accouchements.

In 1829 he became an associate professor at the University of Strasbourg, where in 1834 he was appointed professor of accouchements (obstetrics). In 1867 he was appointed dean to the faculty of medicine at Strasbourg. Due to consequences of the Franco-Prussian War, the medical faculty relocated to Nancy in 1872, where Stoltz resumed his role as dean.

He died on 20 May 1896, aged 92.
