Birthday: July 1997
Date of Surgery: April 28, 2008
Product: TATE Elbow
Surgeons: Dr. Loïc Déjardin and Dr. Reunan Guillou; Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, and Dr. Randy Acker; Sun Valley Animal Center, Ketchum, ID
Referring Veterinarian: Dr. Sarah Shull; Family Friends Veterinary Hospital, Grand Rapids, MI

At the time of surgery, Jake was diagnosed with chronic, extensive degenerative joint disease secondary to fragmentation of his right medial coronoid process. Pre-operative apprehensions vanished when Jake went home after an uneventful recovery, already bearing significant weight on his new elbow prosthesis. Jake is nearing the three year anniversary of his total elbow replacement and continues to do very well.
