Tammy Gracefuls (sister)

Tommy Gracefuls is a recurring character in the Amateur Surgeon games. He is a criminal who is the second patient of Act 1 in Amateur Surgeon, the first patient of Act 1 in Amateur Surgeon 2, and the 5th and 16th patient in Amateur Surgeon 4: Re-Generations.

Bio Edit

Tommy is a burglar who's not so good at pulling off heists. It can be assumed that Tommy has gone through many failed attempts of thievery, since he is a recurring patient throughout the series(AS1, AS Hospital, and AS2.)

It's known that Tommy has a sibling, who's name is Tammy Gracefuls.

Amateur Surgeon Edit

While attempting to steal from the empty warehouse, Tommy somehow stumbled through a glass window, falling onto the floor right in front of newbie surgeon Alan Probe and mentor Dr. Bleed. Excited to see a potential patient, Alan goes up to him and offers him a glass extraction.

Tommy's first appearance

In the post-op cutscene, he states that he recognizes Dr. Bleed, implying that he might have been a former patient of Bleed's while the Old Hospital was still active.

Alan's Description Edit

Neither the brightest nor talented of thieves, the patient is more of a danger himself than to anyone's jewels, family or otherwise. Patient has taken a nasty fall through a window while failing to burgle a largely empty warehouse. Several extractions required to fix the pain in the glass.

Alan, that doesn't quite make sense –DR. Bleed

Amateur Surgeon 2 Edit

Bradley brings in an injured Tommy to Alan Probe in order to get the glass removed from his body. It's unknown whether or not if he was robbing the home or was residing there.

Alan's Description Edit

It's a masked blast from the past! Was he robbing the Old Folks Home, or does he live here now?

Either way, Tommy here is in urgent need of a glassectomy — and that's just the start of his troubles…

Personality and Appearance Edit


AS Hospital File Photo

I was "framed"! Geddit? On account of all the glass in me?

–Tommy's quote from Amateur Surgeon Hospital

Not much is known about Tommy. However he seems to have a sense of humor, even cracking jokes at his own mishaps, along with a touch of persistence. He is always seen in a hoodie, cap and jeans with a blindfold with holes cut in it to act as a mask. If one look at his front view during pre-op, he appears to have a few gold teeth.


Comparison of Tommy throughout different titles

  • In AS2, Tommy had a few teeth missing and one more gold tooth, however in his pre-op for the AS4 remaster he appears to still have them all and the tooth that was gold appears to be normal.
  • Present only in the first game, Tommy's shoes appear different in the pre-op. He normally has white shoes with black shoelaces, but in the pre-op his shoes appear black with white soles and shoelaces.

Procedure Edit

Amateur Surgeon Edit

A straightforward extraction. Use the tongs to pull out the several glass pieces around Tommy's body, along with stapling and cauterizing various cuts. The only other area where you'll have to repeat these steps is his lungs.

Amateur Surgeon 2 Edit


The heart in AS4

Acting as one of the tutorial levels of the game, there are a few cuts on Tommy's body that must be cauterized and healed. Then the player will have to extract pieces of glass when making the first incision into him.

  • In AS2, this would be the only area the player could venture into. However in AS4, an extra area was added, possibly so then Tommy's surgery would not be so short. This area is his heart, where there is a small cut, a large one and four hidden glass shards inside. The player must use the scanner to locate them, then poke them out with the pizza cutter to expose them. The glass can then be extracted.


  • In Amateur Surgeon 3, one of the patients in Mumbo Jungle is named Tammy Gracefuls, a tomb raider who shares the same surname as Tommy Gracefuls. Tammy stated that she has a brother. Given that information, it is possible that these two characters are brother and sister. It is most likely, considering their tendencies to injure themselves in an attempt to gain riches of any kind.
