Doc Talk: Men don’t have to resign themselves to low testosterone

In the early 1900s, Kansas was home to one of the most financially successful doctors in American history – John Brinkley who practiced in Milford. He became famous – or infamous to some – for procedures which involved the transfer of tissue from one species to another; specifically, transplanting goat testicles into humans as a treatment of sexual dysfunction. Brinkley was scrutinized and eventually exposed as a charlatan and stripped of his license to practice medicine; however, his work was partially responsible for inspiring serious investigators to discover testosterone.
