The Doctor Will See You Now!

You are about to venture into a world of medicine before the time of anesthesia, painkillers or antibiotics — that’s three of the reasons why there is a disproportionate amount of surgical tools here that are devoted to amputation!

If you were unfortunate enough to have an accident as relatively fixable as a compound fracture (a bone break where the bone protrudes through the skin) most certainly that limb would have been amputated because if the set the bone it was surely going to develop a major infection and the patient dying from blood poisoning.

If you were “lucky” enough not to be having an amputation tool used upon your body, just remember that brutal looking device was invading your body without the aid of anesthesia or painkillers.
