There Are No Uvulectomologists

Oh, there are plenty of uvulectomies being done. I may get one myself if my apnea gets much worse. But there are no doctors who do only uvulectomy work.

And I think that's sad.

It would be great fun to tell people, "I've got a 2-o'clock with Dr. John the Uvulectomologist." Or even uvulectomist. C'mon! Everybody's got one; the uvula-gone-wrong is a common theme in cartoons, literature and nightmares; why aren't there any specialists?
