1st Sports Horse patient operated in Tampere, Finland


DVM Jukka Houttu, who has extensive experience in equine orthopedics, has operated the first equine patient using COPLA® Scaffold. The front knee was operated this week and the operation was successful.

1st Heppa

According to Dr. Houttu, the treated lesion was relatively large and without the COPLA® Scaffold the prognosis of having this horse back on the trotting track was bad. Askel Healthcare wishes the best recovery to the latest patient joining the ever increasing COPLA® regenerative cartilage club.

After this successful operation Dr. Houttu is keen to have a second patient using COPLA® Scaffold.
Dr. Houttu is a founder of first independent equine clinic in Finland called Tampere Equine clinic and in 2004 he was named the Veterinarian of the Year by the Finnish Veterinary Association.
