William West was an early-nineteenth-century successful small-town surgeon-apothecary who took a major role in the local movement for medical reform. He published the first series of ovariotomies in England in 1837. His son suffered from a type of infantile spasm which West described in the Lancet in 1841, and which is now known as West's syndrome.
