Illustration from “Orthopaedia” by Nicolas Andry (translated into English, 1743), advocating a splinting method “for recovering the Shape of the Leg, as is used for making streight the crooked Trunk of a young Tree.” 

Russell Hibbs (1869-1932) was the pioneer of spinal fusion in an era of rampant tuberculosis and poliomyelitis.  The Scoliosis Research Society honors his name with an annual research award (which, by some miracle, I won, along with my great mentor Marc Asher).  I still have a Hibbs retractor in my spine trays.
