    Lister was significant as in the long run his discovery stopped patients from dying of infection, this meant more complex operations became possible

    People opposed carbolic spray for many reasons.

    the first reason would be that some doctors never not the same results, due to the fact they did not follow the same method as Lister.

    Next would be the effects of carbolic spray, it was smelly, made everything wet and made the surgeon's hands crack.

    Lastly, doctors didn't believe Listers idea worked as he changed his mind, but only because he wanted to find new substances that work just as well.
