W. Hardy Hendren, MD.
Hodrick was born in 2001 with a host of birth defects that presented
extraordinary challenges to doctors in St. Petersburg, Fla. Her
parents brought her to Boston, where W.
Hardy Hendren, MD, chief emeritus of Surgery, and Michael
Scott, MD, director of Neurosurgery, corrected Autumnís many
problems in five surgeries spanning three months and over 40 hours
in the operating room.
At right, Hendren bids farewell to a recovering Autumn
before the familyís return to Florida.
