[show]From the first introduction of Dr. Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes), the character walked with a limp and used a cane. The reason behind Weaver's disability went unexplained for many years (even to Innes--in an Ability Magazine interview, she said that the writers "wanted to keep it open, and not have it be something that was an issue"). Not until season 11 did the show reveal that Weaver's condition was congenital hip dysplasia. But in 2006, not long before Innes left the show, the showrunners decided to have Weaver undergo surgery that would eliminate the limp and the need for the crutch. This was because Laura Innes had started to experience some real-life medical problems from her decade of playing Weaver with a limp. Innes told a reporter, "My real back was getting screwed up. I got a bone density test and the bottom of my spine is starting to curve on one side from 10 years of raising my hip. . . . I've just started going to the chiropractor. I don't need an operation."
- Abby is the only character to have been both a nurse and a doctor.
