Terry Durkes

gold1shdDr Durkes began his research in the gold bead implant in 1975. Initially his research was for the treatment of hip dysplasia and epileptic seizures. Over the next 5 years he also started research on arthritis of the back, knee, elbow, and shoulder plus the treatment of wobbler disease. In all conditions except epileptic seizures, Dr Durkes is helping the muscles, tendons, and ligaments around the joint to tighten up. This prevents the excessive movement of the joint which helps to stop pain and weakness of the joint. Dr Durkes is able to achieve this goal in 1 to 3 weeks post gold bead implant.

Long term Dr Durkes gets a gradual remodeling of the joint. In spondylosis of the back, he has had complete remodeling of the back within 2 years post implant. In all other joints he has 30- 40% remodeling.

In epileptic seizures Dr Durkes is correcting electrical blockages in the nervous system. These electrical blockages will eventually cause seizures if the body is unable to correct them.

Sue Van Matre

sue2shdI started doing kennel work in high school. Then in 1988 Dr.Terry Durkes trained me as his technician. I also have worked with the DNR to rehabilitate wild animals.

Dr. Durkes has shown me the proper way to care for wild life and it has been rewarding to see them released back into the wild.

I have two children.

I love working with animals to make sure they get the best care possible. Working at Western Avenue Animal Hospital has been very rewarding for me.

I am also a 4-H leader with Wranglers Horse and Pony Club and Liberty – Green 4-H. Club. It is all about loving to work with the animals.
