Hacking Up Children and Other Tales from The Farmers Market
June 26, 2015

Andy King doesn't like to describe his job as "hacking up children." As an orthopedic surgeon and the (pardon the pun) head of the spine unit at Children's Hospital in New Orleans, Andy is good naturedly circumspect about how he describes using mechanical instruments on kids' backs. As a New Zealander, he's a lot less sensitive to his description of Australians. Bridget Kelly is a 7th generation New Orleanian whose son, August,... Read More »
