Ted T. questioned whether he would ever be able to walk again after sustaining multiple traumatic knee injuries in September of 2017. The injuries were so severe that Avita orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Kyle Randall, was called in to perform an emergency surgery to reconstruct both knees. This was the first of two major surgeries performed by Dr. Randall, in which he spent hours in the operating room meticulously reconstructing Ted’s tendons.

Avita plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Walter Bodjanac, was then given the daunting task of performing a series of skin grafts combined with synthetic graft alternatives to cover exposed tendon. “Other experts said there was only a 10% chance that the grafting would work, but Dr. Bodjanac believed that he could regrow the skin with a state-of-the-art procedure, and he ended up beating the odds,” explained Ted T.

“From the physicians to the nurses to the therapists, the care and support that I received at Avita was overwhelming. I’m proud to say that Dr. Randall and Dr. Bodjanac saved my knees.”
