Summary: This article profiles Victor Neufer, who injured his ankle in a biking accident. Doctors found the 49-year-old Modesto resident had bone degeneration, spurs and other problems, and he wasn’t a good candidate for a fusion procedure commonly given to patients after years of suffering. Victor received Wright’s INBONE™ Total Ankle implant. He is now able to walk again and expects a complete recovery to follow soon.
