2986. A new successful Medial Patella Luxation surgery by Dr Kochi fujii

July 30, 2016

I read the below from a blog.


DSCF9763Every wednesday (the third day of my visit to Fujii-Vets) the clinic is closed. This gave us the opportunity to spend some time to discover the interesting Tokio-area. I’m very lucky having Dr. Kochi Fujii being my guide. He arranged an awesome program.
Dr. Fujii is a remarkable colleague. Not only is he (as British people would say) in every inch a gentleman, he’s also very innovative, open for new ideas and easy to communicate with. But above all, he’s a very intelligent and educated man. Besides DVM, he’s also a MBA and a PhD.

He developed a new, successful operation on MPL (Medial Patella Luxation). Instead of deepening the trochlea, he changed the kneejoint by taking a v-shaped piece out, turning it 180 degrees and putting it back in place. In this was the trochlear rim becomes higher, preventing the patella luxating. He came up with the idea while cutting an apple. He cutted out a v-shape piece, turned it half and placed it back. Eureka! Maybe Koichi is de next person becoming famous due to an apple, after Isaac Newton, Robin Hood and Steve Jobs
