Summary/Abstract: The activity of the surgeons and the surgery station units at the primary hospital, called later Alexandrovska Hospital, in Sofia are profoundly explored and discussed. Most important attention is paid to the activity of the Swiss-born surgeon Dr. Karl Stirlin (1862–1928), a student of Prof. Kroenlein from Zurich, where he himself graduated medicine in 1886. He succeeded in the establishment of Alexandrovska Academy of Surgery, which the pioneer Bulgarian university hospital surgeons: Dr. Asen Petrov, Dr. Dimitar Mihaylovski, etc., and pioneer ortopaedic and trauma surgeons: Dr. Ivan Kojuharov, Dr. Hristo Tantilov, etc., have been tutoring at. New information concerning the activity and achievements of the tragically deceased Dr. Asen Petrov, chief of the first Department of Ortopaedics in Bulgaria (1910), is introduced in this article. The life and achievements of Dr. Nikola Nedkov – pioneer in Reconstructive Surgery in Bulgaria, have also been introduced.
