During the past twelve years Dr. vT.
A. Lew in has cured nearly six thoasand
cases of rupture. While many ot those
whom ho cured reside In St Louis, the
lisp of paUcnts cared Is by- no means
confined as residents to St. Louis, but
reside in all parts ot the country.
Dr. Lcwln's national popularity as a
rupture specialist Is the simple result
of his unparalleled success In the treat
ment of this most dangerous and terri
ble affliction. Case3 that have been
abandoned as utterly hop-less by tbe
most skilled medical practitioners have
yielded to Dr. Lewin's treatment, and
In a remarkably short time those who
were supposed to be doomed to life-long;
suffering have been restored to health
and comfort without fear or relapse.
Distinguished members of the medical
profession have frankly confessed their
amazement and have not only Tccom
roended their cwn patients to go to
Doctor Lewln. but they themselves have
sought his aid.
