The Work of Human Hands: Surgical Wonder at Children's Hospitalby G. Wayne Miller
The Work of Human Hands is award-winning journalist G. Wayne Miller’s/i>
Hardy Hendren is not a household name, but he is an authentic American hero, an obsessively driven doctor whose work is studied and whose skills are sought throughout the world. He is “a surgeon’s surgeon: one of the world’s best,” according to C. Everett Koop, former surgeon general.
The Work of Human Hands is award-winning journalist G. Wayne Miller’s captivating and inspiring account of one of Hardy Hendren’s biggest challenges: Lucy Moore, a fourteen-month-old girl born with life-threatening defects of the heart, central nervous system and genitourinary system. Before Hendren, surgeons regarded Lucy’s condition as fatal. Now, largely due to Hendren’s contributions, these childen are saved and made normal. But even by Hendren’s standards, Lucy Moore is a daunting and demanding case.
