Barry's Information

Birthday: Oct. 26, 2003
Breed: Yellow Labrador retriever
Date of Surgery: Oct. 8, 2010 and March 17, 2012
Product: TATE Elbow®
Surgeons: Drs. Michael P. Kowaleski and Robert J. McCarthy of the Cummings School of
Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, N. Grafton, Mass.; Dr. Loic Dejardin of Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, E.
Lansing, Mich.; and Dr. Randy Acker of Sun Valley Animal Center in Ketchum, Idaho.

At the time of Barry’s initial examination, he was chronically lame on both front limbs,
however his right side was worse. Following a TATE elbow replacement, his right limb slowly became his dominant side. Approximately 1-1/2 years later, a TATE elbow replacement was performed on Barry’s left side.
