Corky was absolutely crippled with osteoarthritis in his right knee. When he was a wee pup, he had surgery for a luxating patella (dislocating knee cap). Several years later he was having trouble again with this stifle after he damaged the cranial cruciate ligament inside his knee. This is a common injury in the dog however Corky had also damaged a meniscus. His meniscal injury was very severe and resulted in a total meniscectomy which is necessary but the vital cushion and stabiliser for the knee is removed. This leads to severe osteoarthritis. Corky was in terrible discomfort and Dr Rob performed a stem cell treatment on Corky’s stifle. 5 days later, Corky was like a pup again. His owner is absolutely delighted and Corky is now pain free and strutting like a pup all over again.
