A Doctor's bag is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


A doctor's bag is used to heal crippled limbs in both normal and hardcore modes. Alongside the use of doctor's bags, in hardcore mode, the only other ways to heal crippled limbs are to be healed by a doctor, using the drug Hydra, sleeping in an owned bed or using healing poultice, daturana or weapon binding ritual from the Honest Hearts add-on. The bag may be used to heal all limbs for a small amount, or through the stats screen, can be applied to a single limb for a much greater effect.


This item can be crafted by the Courier.

Behind the scenes

The symbol depicted on the doctor's bag is the Caduceus, which actually symbolizes commerce, but is commonly erroneously used as a symbol of medicine instead of the correct Rod of Asclepius.
