  •  Closing wedge osteotomy for cranial cruciate ligament rupture in a hind limb amputee

Louis did really well and was still going strong in 2015 with no sign of recurrence of the cancer evident.

Unfortunately he then ruptured his cranial cruciate ligament, and he was struggling to walk. So his owner brought him back for an osteotomy (bone cutting) technique to help him cope with this rupture. He needed a robust fixation of the osteotomy with plates, and a bit of careful support for the first few days until he was able to get up on his own.
