Professor Helbert Spleen was a Healer who worked at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries. He doubled as an advice columnist for the Daily Prophet, answering only the questions which related to health, while Grizel Hurtz, Zamira Gulch, and Dempster Wiggleswade handled other topics. In one issue, Spleen replied to a letter from Howland Coopey, diagnosing him with Dragon Pox based on the symptoms he described.

Behind the scenes

  • The Daily Prophet referred to Spleen by the title "Professor." This may indicate that he once taught at a wizarding school. This can be, however, just an academic title.
