Bionic Limbs for Dogs

Denis Marcellin-Little is an orthopedic surgeon at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Carolina State University. Over the last seven years, he has been pioneering a remarkable intervention for dogs with missing legs, giving them prosthetic limbs that are permanently attached to their bodies. The procedure is called a transdermal osseointegration.

Here is the story of Zeus who lost his paw in a dog attack as a puppy and the miracle work being done in this field by Dr. Marcellin-Little and his colleagues.

Heart warming!
