The medicine of the ancient Egyptians is some of the oldest documented. From the beginnings of the civilization in the Template:Circa until the Persian invasion of 525 BC, Egyptian medical practice went largely unchanged and was highly advanced for its time, including simple non-invasive surgery, setting of bones and an extensive set of pharmacopoeia. Egyptian medical thought influenced later traditions, including the Greeks.
