When sweet little Bruce came to BVNS Richmond, he was originally diagnosed with a host of intracranial and cervical abnormalities. His condition had gotten to the point where he appeared depressed, in severe pain, and was unable to effectively rise and walk without extreme difficulty.

A brain and cervical MRI revealed severe problems in the back part of his brain and Dr. Higginbotham performed a foramen magnum decompression surgery. Bruce’s condition dramatically improved during the first month following his surgery. He appeared bright and neurologically stable.

Last week, Bruce returned for a recheck exam 14 months after his brain surgery. He showed only mild weakness when walking, but no other signs that his disease had recurred! We are so very pleased with his response and anticipate continued improvement. Way to go, Bruce!
