Excerpt from The Surgical Clinics of North America, 1921, Vol. 1: With 789 Illustrations
The same may be said of the newer methods of treatment. Even in the city the practitioner may often be saved from the exploiting drug or serum or vaccine manufacturer, because the clinician will tell him the truth as to the value or worthlessness of these exploited remedies and save him from therapeutic pitfalls. It is to be hoped that these clinical lectures will especially take up many of the common diseases and injuries, such as hemorrhoids, fractures of many individual bones, with the end-results, syphilitic lesions, real and reliable serums and vaccines, with the evidence for their wonderful results, etc.
The rare and curious cases will aid, from time to time, by exciting interest, and occasionally by bringing up from the well of memory of the readers other similar but as yet unrecorded cases.
Many a good surgeon will be glad to learn from Frazier's paper the perfected and practically non-dangerous Operation for tic douloureux (the spelling and pronunciation of which by doc tors Often leave much to be desired) and from Gibbon's clinic the Stewart incision for amputation of the breast.
