"Lumbar" Jack Piles is the seventh patient of Act 1 in Amateur Surgeon and is the 10th patient in Amateur Surgeon 4: Re-Generations.


Lumbar is a Canadian lumberjack who has gained a very bad back.

Amateur Surgeon[]

He entered the warehouse where Alan Probe and Dr. Bleed are residing, heavily slouching due to severe back pain. Alan gladly steps up to fix his back problem. Afterwards Lumbar is able to snap his back into place, relieved of the excruciating discomfort.

Alan's Description[]

The patient is Canadian, or Russian or Scandinavian or something. Definitely one of the countries where they're always cutting down trees and interfering with animals... Alan! This does NOT qualify as a useful patient write-up!-DR. Bleed

Patient complains of bad back...which is great because with a name like "Piles", he had me worried for a moment. Open up affected area, drain fluids and return him to the wild.


An easy procedure: slice-and-suck up the poison, extract any lodged logs and burn and gel small and large cuts.

  • In AS4 the poison can also be sucked up with the syringe.

Level Dialogue[]

Before Surgery[]

Jack: My nickname's "Lumbar" Jack. Partly becuase of my profession, but mainly because of my back, eh? It pains me something fearsome!

Alan: Nurser! Anesthetic please!

Bleed: I'm not your nurse, Alan!

After Surgery[]

Jack: That feels...

Jack: *CRACK!*

Jack: Oh yes! Ooh, I'll be back to wrestlin' bears and violating forests in no time!

Alan: Right...well! Don't get the two confused! Have fun now!


  • His name is a pun of the word "lumberjack".
  • "Lumbar" is a medical term relating to the lower spine.
