William Ernest Miles (1869 – 1947) was an English surgeon known for the Miles' operation: an abdomino-perineal excision for rectal cancer. His approach was to combine surgery via the perineum with surgery from above the cancer via the abdomen, known as abdomino-perineal resection.

Burrill Bernard Crohn (1884 – 1983) was an American gastroenterologist who made the first major advance to identify the disease that now bears his name.
