The Trick to Remove Fish Hooks: Faster, Less Damage and Less Pain
While on holiday on a remote island 80km from the coast, one of our podiatrists had the grisly task of removing a 6/0 hook that was firmly embedded in an 11 year olds foot. Pete demonstrates how this was done to avoid a medivac by helicopter and potentially more damage to the structures of the foot with general surgical excision.
These techniques should only be used for hooks embeded in soft tissue and never around the eyes, face, vital organs, genitals or if nerves, tendons or arteries might be involved.
