Crochet Hook Used for SurgeryBy Rachel Choi – 7 Comments
|Dr. Peter Lawrence, chief of vascular surgery at UCLA, developed a new technique to get rid of varicose veins. More interestingly, this technique uses a small crochet hook to help remove the veins. This is a minimally invasive and non-scarring procedure called light-assisted stab phlebectomy (lasp). Who ever thought that crochet hooks would be used for more than just crochet?
Have you ever seen or used crochet hooks for something other than crocheting?
