Hümér Hültl was a Hungarian surgeon, noted for his work with surgical staples.


Hümér Hültl was born on July 14, 1868 in Felsőbánya. He is buried in Kerepesi Cemetery in Budapest.


Hültl is known for his work with surgical staples. In 1908, he pioneered the technique in gastrointestinal surgery, using a stapler designed by Victor Fischer.[1] Aladár von Petz innovated further upon Hültl and Fischer's stapler,[2] and the technique is in wide use today.
