Dr. Masami Uechi of the Japan Animal Specialty Medical Institute is the amazing surgeon that performs this operation.
In most cases, surgery stops the disease from progressing, however, sometimes a second surgery is needed and is not always as successful. Medications are sometimes still necessary as well, but like it stated, it stops the disease from progressing.
It is so amazing that the veterinary field continues to make advances that once seemed impossible. Is it wild to imagine a future where the same amount of procedures and medications we have in the human medical field will exist in the veterinary field?
