Default Wilma's Broken Hip Repair

Wilma (Flintstone) one of our mannequin's had a broken hip socket. I was tasked to repair it, so I brought it home. The plastic piece was broken out by student getting a bit aggressive with their "peri-care" practice & it just broke out.

Using some thin aluminum I was able to sandwich the piece of plastic back where it belongs, then a plate in the "peritoneal cavity" at the pelvis. Using another plate, I attached it to the "socket" of the hip joint. 1 bolt & 4 self tapping screws, she's back in service.

And that folks is how you repair a broken hip socket.



(The tape is to keep it PG rated & not embarrass our more "delicate" members)

Too bad you can't charge what them other fellers charge to do hip replacements.

Are you "practicing surgery" without a license. I don't think that line about
being a Nurse is adequate. :-)

Just tell the doc's you did a successful hip surgery in your shop.

Ex wife knew me too well, and left me with needles and thread in a neat little autoclave package. (She was US Army Nurse...
finally went back and got her RN and travels these day. Irony is she did really fine needle point for fun, but now is in demand
by plastic surgeons as they let her close up all those layers).

Maybe that student should join the Marine Corps - they value people who can rip someone a new A-hole. Perineal care indeed.

You DID sterilize it before working on it, correct? Don't want to get any STDs!
