On this episode of Tripawd Talk Radio we will learn how amputation impacts dogs' bodies. Our guide is Dr. Denis J. Marcellin-Little, DVM, Diplomate ACVS, VSMR and Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at North Carolina State University. Chances are you're already familiar with Dr. Marcellin-Little's work. Over the last few years he's become world famous for orthopedic breakthroughs in animals such as the first total knee replacement in a cat. "I am interested in limb sparing and the design, fabrication, and implantation of custom orthopedic implants," he writes in his bio. And that he's doing. In his breakthrough implants known as transdermal osseointegration, Dr. Marcellin-little creates titatnium implants that attach to animals' legs and prosthetics. He has successfully performed this procedure on more than six dogs and two cats as of 2015. Today we'll discuss amputation as a concept, amputation of a front leg versus the back leg, amputation in puppies and how to help amputees through the use of Dr. Marcellin-Little's technology and prosthetic limbs. Dr. Marcellin completed his doctor of veterinary medicine training in Toulouse, France. He is a Diplomate of both the European and American College of Veterinary Surgeons. Dr. Marcellin is recognized as an authority in the field of veterinary orthopedics. His areas of interest include total hip replacement, external fixation, treatment of bone deformities and physical therapy. His current research interests include the biological response to orthopedic implants, distraction osteogenesis and canine developmental orthopedic diseases.
