For a long time, they were trying to register a win like this and finally they have been able to do it. Auburn University has finally conducted an operation where they have fixed a prosthetic leg to an 11 week old miniature donkey foal, which has been named as Emma.
The surgery took place at Thomas Vaughan Teaching Hospital in Auburn University. The operation was being led by Fred Caldwell, who is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Clinical Sciences. Caldwell said that it is a matter of pride for them, as now they will be able to help other animals as well who have been suffering any kind of deformity.
While explaining the condition of Emma, Caldwell said that Emma was born with deformed leg, and after two days of its birth, they decided to take out life saving surgery on Emma. The operation has given it a similar but prosthetic leg and now Emma is free to move.
Caldwell said that they did not want to go wrong, so they took the help of Hangar Prosthetics & Orthotics, which designed a prosthetic leg for Winter, an amputee dolphin. The company immediately agreed to help Emma.
