Hmm... that reminds me of this old hoax. Here, listen to this. It's clearly a joke. No one's got the tech to do that without risking infection.

Cutter is a doctor who runs the clinic in Paradise Falls in the year 2277.


Cutter was born in the pens as a slave. She spent her youth learning wasteland medicine from her mother. When her mother passed away, Cutter took over the caretaker duties for the slaves but slowly grew bitter and frustrated with their inability to fight back against the slavers. Spending nearly a decade trading her services, she earned enough caps to buy her freedom. Since Paradise Falls needed a skilled medic, she stayed, taking wealthy slavers for all she could. She can be found at the clinic.[1]
