with the new tetanus antitoxin and even dabbled in the area of blood transfusions.
After a bitter divorce in 1929, he moved to Los Angeles (L.A.) where he eventually got remarried. Dr. Buerger was appointed professor of urology at the College of Medical Evangelists but had difficulty becoming established. At a local meeting, he announced that his reason for coming to L.A. was to teach the local urologists. When Dr. Buerger returned several years later to New York, he was not allowed on the staff at Mt. Sinai, and he gradually drifted into relative obscurity, working at small, private hospitals. Dr. Buerger died in New York City in 1943.
