The surgery team at UVS helped to return 5 year old “Maddie” to her playful self.

“Maddie” F. is a gentle giant par excellence, although ruptured cruciate ligaments in both knees temporarily hampered her play time. “Maddie’s” recuperation following each TPLO surgery was a gradual process of increasing activity and physical therapy. Dr. Besancon and the team of surgical technicians and assistants at UVS helped to return 5 year old “Maddie” to her playful self. She now enjoys bounding through the snow and chasing after toys in the yard.
