BATTEY, Robert, physician, born in Augusta, Georgia, 26 November 1828. He was educated at Phillips Andover academy, and studied in Booth's laboratory, Philadelphia, and in the Philadelphia College of pharmacy, graduating in 1856 at the University of Pennsylvania and at the Jefferson medical College, from which he received his medical degree in 1857. He entered upon the practice of medicine at Rome, Georgia, where he has resided almost continually ever since. During the civil war he served as a surgeon in the confederate army, at first in the field, and later in charge of various hospitals. In August 1872, he originated and successfully performed what is known as Battey's operation for the removal of the ovaries, with a view to effect the change of life in women, thereby remedying certain otherwise incurable maladies. He has been successful in the execution of a number of difficult surgical operations on the urinary organs of both sexes. Of the methods used, several were original with himself. From 1873 to 1875 he was professor of obstetrics in the Atlanta medical College, and from 1873 to 1876 he edited the "Atlanta Medical and Surgical Journal." He is a member of the Georgia medical association, and was its president in 1876 ; also a member of the Atlanta academy of medicine, the American gynaecological society, and the American medical association. He has written numerous papers and reports of cases, which have been contributed to the medical press both in this country and England.
