Celtic Healer God

Also known as Dian-Cécht

God of Healing specializing in body parts

Like so many Celtic Gods he has a cauldron. This one is full of magic potions, so very handy for replacing lost hands (see NUADA.)

He is also particularly good at eye surgery and can replace human eyes with those of a cat.
