Dr. Mütter String Doll Keychain
Introducing our very own Dr. Mütter String Doll! Poised with his trusty scalpel in hand, Dr. Mütter's "special power" reads "Dr. Mütter wants you to be a cut above the rest."
Dr. Mütter was famous for performing surgeries including tumor removal, adjustments of cleft palates, and rhinoplasty among others. In a modern day sense, he was quite similar to a plastic surgeon. He is the one we can all thank for originally donating his personal collection of specimens for study, making the Mütter Museum what it is today!
Take a look at his original photo - how do you think he compares to his String Doll self?
Dr. Mütter, the namesake for the Mütter Museum, began the museum with his donation of medical specimens after his passing. To learn more about some of our permanent exhibitions, click here!
