  • 28 Oct 1890, WONDERFUL CURES AT THE MELBOURNE HOSPITAL.
    Two remarkable cases of persons being restored to sound health after being paralysed in the one case for nearly seven years, and in the other for about two years, have recently occurred at the Melbourne Hospital. In these days of faith healers and alleged miracle-workers, if these cures had been effected by either of these two agencies, the wonderful restoration to health of the afflicted persons would bave been proclaimed trumpet-tongued from the house-tops, and perhaps from more convenient places. They would have furnished the text for many a homily, and faith-healers, red flannel mag neticers, et hoc genus omne, would have pointed to these cases with triumph as a splendid vindication of their methods of healing. The cures, however, have been effected by the exercise of medical know ledge and sound common sense. They cer tainly are of a remarkable character, and deserve to be made widely known. The first case to be mentioned is that of a man, a tailor by occupation, who had been ill, suffering from paralysis some six months or so previous to his being admitted to the Hospital. He became an in-patient about 13 months since, and was admitted to the medical side of the institution. For full twelvemonth and a day, as the old ballad has it, be remained in bed completely para lysed, unable to walk or use his limbs in any way. About a month or six weeks since, the man, who is about 38 years of age, was removed to the surgical side of the Hospital. He was placed under the care of Dr. J. H. Webb, the well-known surgeon. The doctor considered that this was a case which de manded "vigorous treatment," and directed the resident medical officer to use the galvanic battery upon the patient. When the latter was informed that he was to be "batteried," he became greatly agitated, and said to Dr. Boyes, "Oh, I cannot stand it ; you might as well cut my throat." The doctor, however, duly executed the orders of Dr. Webb. The patient howled and screamed at the brutality of the proceed ing, but the result was astonishing. The next day the patient, who had remained in bed paralysed for 12 months, was able to walk about the hospital yard. He was given cold baths in addition to the battery treatment, and in his case it may be truly said that it was a case of "Take up your bed and walk." Within four or five days the patient had completely recovered, and was able to leave the hospital. The second case is, if possible, more re markable still. The patient was a young woman, about 23 years of age, who bad been ill for nearly seven years. For five years she had been bedridden and unable to move hand or foot. She was in the Austin Hospital for Incurables 18 months, and her case was sup posed to be hopeless. Shortly after her admission to the Melbourne Hospital, it was decided to try rigorous treatment in her case. She could hear in the ward where she was lying the cries of the patient previously referred to, when he was given a touch of the galvanic battery. This seemed to alarm her greatly, and she expressed a hope that the battery would not be used in her case. It should be mentioned that the young woman had almost lost her voice, and that it had been considered advisable to stop her friends from visiting her. The visitors were in the habit of bending down over the patient, listening to her whimpers, and generally condoling with her. The medical men considered this kind of thing most in jurious, and put a stop to it. The galvanic battery was tried in her case vigorously, and the first noticable result was the great change in the patient's voice. It appeared suddenly to become quite strong. Then the cold bath treatment was resorted to, and cold douches were given plentifully. On one occasion, after a sharp shower of cold water, this patient, who had been bedridden and paralysed for five years, hopped nimbly out of the bath, and then hopped back again. The patient speedily improved in health, and was walking about the wards in two or three weeks. She was able to render assist ance to other patients, and such a gradual improvement in her health ensued that she was able to leave the Hospital thoroughly cured in less than six weeks from the day upon which her case was first taken in hand for "vigorous treatment." These two patients suffered from a peculiar form of hysteria, and the symptoms of paralysis were simulated in each case. The treatment in cases of this kind is said to be "assumed brutality," or, in other words, it is merely "being cruel only to be kind." The condoling and sympathising with pa tients of this kind is very injurious, and it is satisfactory to note that the medical men attached to the Melbourne Hospital who had charge of these cases had the sound common sense, in addition to their medical skill, to treat them in the manner related above. Two persons have been thus restored to perfect health who would otherwise very probably have remained bedridden for years, and perchance died as confirmed invalids.15
  • 10 Mar 1900, A case of special interest came today before the District court magistrates, when Dr J. H. Webb sued Alfred Eccles, of Abbotsford, for £39 18s medical services—19 visits at £2 2s per visit. Eccles suffered from cancer, and Dr Webb, having been very successful with a new system of treatment for the dreaded disease, agreed to attend him, but denied having guaranteed a cure. It appeared from the evidence that Eccles had much improved under the treatment, but he demurred to the charge as excessive. Defendant contended that the case was to be one of " no cure no pay," but the bench made an order for the amount claimed with costs.16
  • 1 Jul 1901, The "Intercolonial Medical Journal of Australasia" for June is to hand from the publishers, Messrs. Stillwell and Co. Among the articles is one on Antidotes in Poisoning bv Cyanide of Potassium, by Professor Martin and Mr. R. A. O'Brien, of Melbourne University, and one on Cancer and its Treatment, by Dr. J. H. Webb.17
  • 3 Jan 1908, While being operated upon for the removal of a growth on the neck, Mr. Abraham Hunt, of Fitzroy, collapsed in Dr. J. H. Webb's surgery to-day. Despite the prompt application of remedial measures, death ensued. The deceased was 54 years of age, and had been attended by Dr. Webb for cancer in the mouth.18
  • 12 Dec 1908, Those who have followed with interest the long end baffling struggle of medical science against cancer, one of the most dreaded and painful maladies which afflict humanity, will feel that a tribute is due to the efforts of Dr. J. H. Webb, the Melbourne surgeon, whose death occurred this week. This battle is not going to be won in a day. After lengthy research, the commission of investigation in England has done little more than register certain conclusions regarding the disease, and for remedial treatment patients are still dependent in the main upon the early intervention of the skilled surgeon. But an advance, the importance of which has been too little recognised, was certainly made by the late Dr. Webb, who practically devoted the last years of his life to experimenting with a curative treatment of his own devising, which, in some cases—some cases only—yielded astonishing results. There was one broad distinction between the methods of this investigator and of the unqualified persons who from time to time pose as the discoverers of secret remedies, which are never somehow submitted to satisfactory scientific tests. Whatever the extent of his success, Dr. Webb propounded his theory and his method of treatment openly. He was only anxious to convince as many members of his profession as possible of the soundness of his ideas, and induce them to give the treatment a wider trial. There was nothing monopolistic in his attitude, and that alone gave him a claim to consideration. It would be too much probably to say that any large section of the profession has taken up the Webb treatment, but assuredly many individual practitioners have been impressed with its efficacy in certain cases. To touch upon technicalities, Dr. Webb's theory was based upon the absence from cancer cells of cholesterin, a fatty crystalline substance, present in healthy tissues of the human body. He attempted to supply the lack artificially, arguing, presumably, that in this instance effect and cause might not be far removed. Cholesterin he supplied by administering to the patient a special preparation of ox-galls—which he maintained must be absolutely fresh, and manufactured with great precision. Simultaneously, be used a Iocal injection of common soap, possibly as a sort of solvent. The treatment was admitted to be quite inapplicable to that division of cancers known as sarcoma. But the claims of Dr. Webb and those who thought his method worthy of trial was that its effect was marvellous in certain cases of epithelioma, or carcinoma. Cure is an inexact word to use in this connection. We should gather that Dr. Webb's success and some of them are indisputable—lay rather in reducing the manifestations of disease, and holding the enemy at bay indefinitely. That, however, is a prodigious achievement, and the death of the medical man who groped his way so far towards the light ought not to interrupt the patient festing of his ideas.19
