Visiting Lecturer at the Old Operating Theatre Museum this weekend
Long Before the NHS
by Richard Kennedy
Saturday 12th July & Sunday 13th July at 2pm
Richard Kennedy is an author and historian who will speak from the
perspective of a colonial American barber-surgeon. He will demonstrate the
use of scarificators, cupping and leeches to bleed, techniques for the use
of knives and chisels for amputation without anesthesia, and the "latest"
devices used for rotted teeth - the toothkey, pelican and lancet. Richard
makes his home in California and is the author of an historical fiction
"Leeches and Liberty."
