Ether Dome is one of its kind monuments in Boston, Massachusetts. It is a part of the Massachusetts General Hospital and has been preserved over two centuries for its historical significance. Located in the Bulfinch Building of the hospital, it was at Ether Dome on 16 Oct 1846, where first successful anaesthetic surgery was carried out by the use of inhaled ether.
The event was a public demonstration where William Thomas Green Morton was the anaesthetist, and John Collins Warren performed the surgery. Ether Dome is more like an amphitheatre with steps on sides for viewers and a central dome for surgery. The ceiling has windows that allowed proper lighting during operations. It is the site of pilgrimage for medical students and of awe for any enthusiast or traveller.
