LINTHICUM HEIGHTS, Md. (Circa) – Could you imagine a place where they collect old catheters and bladder stones?
Outside of Baltimore, there is a museum dedicated to the medical history of urology, the branch of medicine that focuses on surgical and medical diseases of the urinary system.
It was first opened in 1971. The idea came from William P. Didusch, a world-renowned doctor at the Johns Hopkins Brady Urological Institute.
Didusch remained the curator of the museum until he died in 1981.
It still remains open today and they have an intensive collection of medical artifacts like cystoscopes, catheters and implants.
The museum also keeps urology-related historical medical texts, one of those texts include the pamphlet named “Piss-Prophet.”
