  • About
  • Dr. Andrew King specializes in Pediatric Spine Surgery at Children’s Hospital. With more than 35 years of experience, Dr. King is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He earned his medical degree from the University of Otago Medical School in Dunedin, New Zealand. He then completed his residency training at New Zealand Orthopaedic Association in Wellington, New Zealand and at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in East Melbourne, Australia. He also completed two fellowships, one at Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Hospital in Exeter, England, and the other at LSU Health New Orleans. On why he continues to practice medicine, Dr. King said, “Because even after more than 35 years, I still learn new things every day. I enjoy my patients and their families. I chose my specialty by luck initially! But have become passionate about spine deformities. In addition to the practice of medicine, I enjoy the fellowship of others who share my interest throughout the world and travelling to share ideas.” Dr. King sees patients in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Monroe, LA.
