An online article, written by Danielle Vigueria, highlights Dr. Acker’s groundbreaking TATE Ankle™ and TATE Elbow™ orthopedic surgery for dogs.
After Dr. Acker’s yellow Labrador, Tate, developed elbow dysplasia and advanced arthritis at a young age, he set out to find a solution to help his furry best friend, which would later become a revolutionary orthopedic procedure to help dogs everywhere suffering from osteoarthritis.
