“Bronze hands of Presidents and Celebrities”
Adrian E. Flatt, M.D., Hand Collection The Adrian E. Flatt, M.D., Hand Collection is on display at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas in the George W. Truett Memorial Hospital lobby. The display is open and free to the public 24-hours a day. This exhibit of more than 100 cast, bronze-coated hands is the work of Adrian Flatt, M.D., who was chief of orthopedic surgery at Baylor Dallas from 1982 until 1992. A native of England, Dr. Flatt came to the United States in 1954. Dr. Flatt served as consultant in hand surgery to several organizations and individuals, including the United States Air Force and the United States Space Program. Dr. Flatt was professor of anatomy and hand surgery at the University of Iowa for 22 years, and taught hand surgery at Yale University School of Medicine for three years before coming to Dallas in 1982. Dr. Flatt began in 1962, as a hobby, casting and bronze-coating hands of well-known individuals in various professions. The first hands he cast were those of fellow surgeons to prove there are no typical surgeons hands. Not only did he prove that, but his collection shows how expressive and revealing an individuals hands can be. Since his retirement in 1992, Dr. Flatt continues to teach anatomy and hand surgery to medical students in the residency program at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.
Small and awesome. If you like a nice little odd stop, It's for you! About 100 hands molded from surgeons to Churchill or Dr. Seuss and bronzed. What's not to love about this??
