DescriptionCartoon satirizing Dr. Abraham Buzaglo and his treatment for gout, which required the patients to perform exercises while wearing wooden casts. Three of his patients stand in the foreground, the central man raising his left leg to knee height. He wears a chest cast labeled Buzaglo; part of this name is also visible on the leg cast of the man at right. In the background, Dr. Buzaglo himself fits two more patients with casts. Below the scene, nailed in front of a pair of crossed crutches, is a placard listing the benefits of "Patent muscular health-restoring exercise."
