Professor Noel Fitzpatrick returns for a new series which delves deeper into the science behind his cutting-edge procedures and reveals how he pushes the boundaries of veterinary medicine. In this episode, he harnesses two extraordinary technologies; 3D Printing and 3D milling. Nine-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel Molly is brought in by Tania with a large bump on her head. When scans reveal a potentially fatal tumour in her skull that is growing rapidly, Noel tries something he has never attempted before; using state-of-the-art technology to design a custom-made 3D milled implant to replace the part of her skull affected by the bone cancer.
Professor Noel Fitzpatrick combines biology and technology, infusing unique implants with stem cells to grow bone and cartilage in two ground-breaking operations. Sarah brings in her energetic seven-month-old Italian Spinone, Flo, to see Noel after scans reveal she has a hole in her shoulder bone. With regenerative medicine opening up new options, Noel offers Sarah a custom made implant to plug the hole in Flo's bone. Lisa's seven-year-old Border collie Izzy has been left with a broken leg after being hit by a car five months ago. A failed operation has left her in constant pain and limited options. Lisa is reluctant to amputate, so Noel proposes a brand new treatment never tried before that combines advances in biology and technology to bridge the gap in Izzy's bone and save her leg.
Professor Noel Fitzpatrick is faced with two difficult cases that push his skills to the limit. One-year-old cat Peanut was born with deformed front legs and struggles to walk. His owner Denise is desperate for him to be able to run free and hopes Noel will be able to fit him with two new bionic feet. Noel is the only vet in the world to offer animals prosthetic limbs with a PerFiTS implant designed so that the bone and skin can grow into the metal, which becomes part of the skeleton. If he succeeds with Peanut, it's believed this will be the first ever animal in the world with such double front limb prostheses. But the treatment has risks, and recovery takes patience. Rachelle and John were devastated when their massive 76kg Irish Wolfhound, Ard Ri, was diagnosed with bone cancer in his leg.
In this episode, Charlie carries his much-loved Rottweiler cross Lulu into the practice after she loses the use of all four legs. Her spinal cord is being squashed due to deformity of bone and discs in her neck and her rapid deterioration has become a crisis. Professor Noel Fitzpatrick wants to use a fusion implant designed from her own CT scans that will fit her spine perfectly, but navigating the nerves so close to the spinal cord makes it high-risk surgery. Noel advises Charlie that things may not go according to plan. Andy and Maggs bring in their Doberman cross, Maori, with a badly bulging disc in her neck. She has been increasingly struggling to walk and is in considerable pain. The family has been advised to put Maori to sleep and have brought her to see Noel in the hope of an alternative solution.
