Once Common, Now Forgotten - What Is It?

Items from the Cedars-Sinai Historical Conservancy

This beautifully designed machine was recently donated to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Historical Conservancy by a retired obstetrician-gynecologist. The device was used for many years here at Cedars-Sinai.

What is it? (Scroll down for answer)

Tip: Although donated to the conservancy by an OB/Gyn physician, the device functions in another specialty.

This regular Pulse feature allows you to identify long-forgotten items from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Historical Conservancy. The conservancy's goal is to preserve the hospital’s history through donations of Cedars-Sinai memorabilia such as badges, stationery, photographs, protocol manuals and other keepsake items.

If you have an item you'd like to have reviewed for donation to the conservancy, contact Leo Gordon, M.D., at (310) 423-5262 or leo.gordon@cshs.org.

 

The answer:

This is an original, stainless steel Gomco Bloodless Circumciser. In the early days of the specialty of OB/Gyn, it was often the obstetrician who performed the circumcision.
