Interesting Cases in 2016

Nina Rodriquez is a 2-year-old Pit Bull, who came in to us limping and non-weight bearing one the right rear leg. Dr. Chand took a set of x-rays and quickly identified that she had torn her cruciate ligament. She underwent an ACL repair and stayed with us for a few days. Following the surgery she returned to us for a course of cold laser therapy. Following orthopedic surgery, we find that laser therapy accelerates the healing process while decreasing the patient’s pain and inflammation. Together with regular follow up visits with Dr. Chand, “Nina” made a full recovery and is running around on all four legs.
