Lloyd Finks Story
By Helga Finks
Slipped Femoral Epiphysis
My son Lloyd Finks now a physician in Memphis, Tennessee was a patient of Dr. Kurt Niemann at age 14 and 15 years old. He had surgery on both hips in 1970 and 1971. He was diagnosed with Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis. Only two surgeons in the country at the time were able to do such surgery. We commuted back and forth from Montgomery to Birmingham daily –this was before I-65 was built.
If you would like more information please contact Dr. A. Lloyd Finks, the patient.
