Hippocratic Sign



A friend was commenting on a surgical photo my wife took of some bladder stones she removed surgically from a dog, with the hippocratic oath which states “I will not cut for stone” with the idea that a cystotomy in ancient times normally was fatal in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon, so since you are to do no harm, only a skilled urologist should perform the surgery. so in reading the background about Hippocrates’ views on surgery, I found this quote from his most famous work “the aphorisms”. My friend who is a surgeon really liked the quote. That is :proofgrade: walnut ply with default settings. The engravings are all at “Graphic” setting.


Oh, this is very nice. He (she) will love it!


The original quote from our oath is as follows: “I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favour of such men as are engaged in this work”


Looks great!


Wonderful! As a side note it occurred to me the “fire” might equate to radiation in today’s context…


Magnets. He left out magnets. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Looks Good!!!


We have TMS lab at our hospital, run by a good friend of mine. He’s asked me in the past to 3D print superconducting coils for research (those must be some happy mice) out of Nylon 910.


Heh, lucky mice! I leave the coil mods to the researchers, but I did 3D print a MINIX mount for the NeuroStar machine body so patients can practice biofeedback exercises while they get their treatments. :wink:
