Cat Undergoes Full Knee Replacement

A 10 year old cat from Upperville, Virginia that suffer from cancer received a revolutionary full knee replacement. Cyrano the name of the cat weighs more than 20 pounds, and due to his weight his damaged leg could not be amputated.

The owner Sandra Lerner and Len Bosack turned to doctors and engineers at North Carolina State University to get him back to normal. The surgery was performed by Engineer and professor Ola Harrysson and described the operation as part of a pure research project, since it a joint of this kind for a cat has never been done before.

And the cost of the six-hour operation is thought to be about $20,000. But the owner said "Rat Boy" is worth every penny. “He’s my child. And if it were your child, would you begrudge the money? I have a personal philosophy that people are, at best, equal with the other inhabitants of the planet. And I’m very, very grateful that I have the money and (am) able to do it.”
