Big Wounds But A Big Recovery

This is one of the worst cases of bite trauma that we have ever seen, but fortunately it was also one of the best recoveries. In 2002, Marvin was attacked by two large dogs while walking in his neighborhood. The damage was so severe that over 50% of his skin was beyond repair.

Marvin spent six weeks in our hospital and had numerous surgeries. We used a new technique that stretched his skin. And with time, pain management, antibiotics, and lots of TLC, Marvin made a full recovery.

And that was over six years ago, and Marvin has been doing great! Marvin was in the other day for routine care and it was great to see him.

Go Marvin!
