A doctor's bag is an aid item in Fallout: New Vegas.


A doctor's bag is used to heal all of the limbs that are crippled in both Normal and Hardcore modes. Using doctor's bags, getting 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 are the only ways to heal crippled limbs while playing in Hardcore mode. 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 scenesEdit

  • 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.
