  • By Elizabeth Hofheinz, MEd, MPH of Orthopedics This Week published May 5th, 2009 Whether studying replication in fruit flies or working on a design team for a meniscal product, Dr. Jack Farr, an orthopedic surgeon and founder of the OrthoIndy Cartilage Restoration Center of Indiana (Indianapolis, Indiana), likes to excavate all of the important details surrounding a problem. And then he moves forward. Years ago a young Jack Farr would move forward by moving southward. Dr. Farr: “I was born in Sitka, Alaska, where my dad was principle of the local high school. Because he felt strongly that we (kids) would have more potential for a broader education in the lower states, he moved the family to Indiana when I was in first grade. Having a stay-at home mom meant that my dad’s tenet of never delaying school projects was routinely followed.” For the full article, see www.CartilageRestoration.org at http://www.cartilagerestoration.org/blog
