Do you need a lobotomy?

Do you take yourself too seriously? Are you in major need of a sense of humour? A lobotomy may help lighten you up so you can enjoy life, instead of spending the rest of your days as an angry troll! 

Cruising around the country in his “Lobotomobile,” Dr. Walter Freeman coined the visited mental institutions all over the United States performing prefrontal lobotomy and transorbital, aka “icepick,” surgeries on the mentally ill. He is estimated to have performed almost 3,500 surgeries, including one on JFK’s sister, Rosemary Kennedy in 1941, who went from a rebellious 23-year-old young woman to incontinent and with the mental capacity of a 2-year-old at the hands of Dr. Freeman and his surgeon partner, Dr. James Watts, and she remained institutionalized for the remainder of her life. Despite this, and the controversial, dangerous and unproven nature of the surgery, Freeman believed his psychosurgery cured everything from schizophrenia to depression. In 1942, he and Dr. Watts co-authored the medical text Psychosurgery: Intelligence, Emotion and Social Behavior Following Prefrontal Lobotomy for Mental Disorders, from which the following before-and-after shots are taken from. The transorbital surgery was reportedly quick, but done without anesthesia and without gloves or mask.

Just look at the results below, and ask your doctor for more information!

    Hard to believe that only 70 years ago, we were still pushing sharp objects through peoples’ brainpans to bring them to heel.
