Ruby's Information

Birthday: May 10, 2001
Breed: Golden retriever
Date of Surgery: May 31, 2008
Product: Canine Total Knee
Surgeons: Dr. Chris Preston of Pet Emergency & Specialist Centre, Malvern, Australia
Referring Veterinarian: Dr. Adam Stefani of Mornington Vet Clinic, Mornington, Australia

Ruby had bilateral chronic partial anterior cruciate ligament disease as well as mild bilateral canine hip dysplasia. During examination, it was determined she had not received any type of surgical intervention ad a total knee replacement (TKR) would be beneficial. Ruby received the first canine TKR in Australia. The procedure was performed by two veterinary surgical specialists and a human joint replacement surgeon. Long-term clinical and radiographic followup revealed a stable and functional knee.
