Guy de Chauliac or Guigonis de Caulhaco (ca. 1300 – 25 July 1368) was a French physician and surgeon who wrote a lengthy and influential treatise on surgery in Latin, titled Chirurgia Magna. It was translated into many other languages (including Middle English circa 1425) and widely read by physicians in late medieval Europe.
