An ancient surgical technique, dated back to 600BC in India, is seeing a modern twist to treating dog bites on the face. This interesting ABC News NY video shows how a surgeon from Ohio treated a victim of a dog attack where the victim’s tip of the nose was bitten off. The ancient surgical technique involves making a small incision on the forehead, removing a flap of skin, and flipping it downwards to mend the injured area of the nose.
