Surgeon Work Well Done Victim of Accident Provided With Celluloid Jaw Almost as Good as the Original. A remarkable operation, which Is rarely ever tried, was performed at the Lebanon hospital, in the Bronx, upon Gustav Dugnan, relates the New York American. The physicians declared de-clared that in a month their patient would be able to go among his friends, showing no traces of having met with an accident in which he lost a portion of his lower Jaw bone. Dugnan Is a baker. One night about ten weeks ago he was attending attend-ing to an automatic oven when the door suddenly swung open and hit him in the jaw. It tore away the lower portion of his chin, and he was removed to Lebanon hospital. It was first attempted to heal the wound, but soon the doctors saw that such a course would be impossible, and a section of the bone was removed.- In order that the man might retain his original features a plastic operation opera-tion was performed. Drs. Syms, Cohen and Benjamin took charge. First they made a wire bridge in the shape of the missing bone. For several weeks they permitted the flesh and skin to grow over nature's substitute. The other day they decided to remove the wires, in their stead placing a piece of celluloid. Then they drew the flesh over the artificial jaw and stitched the skin together. "It was one of the most remarkable remark-able operations ever performed at this hospital," Dr. Benjamin said. "Although a small scar will always remain, his appearance will be practically prac-tically the same as before the accident.
