Chien really going places

7 year old Chien came to St John of God Berwick Hospital from Vietnam last November.

7 Jul 2020

Orthopaedic surgeon, Professor Ton Tran performed a miracle and corrected Chien's club feet and hip dysplasia, allowing the determined little boy to walk for the first time in his life. Professor Tran, along with Children First Foundation and other supporters, brought Chien to Australia to not only change his life, but offer him a bright future. In addition to his surgery, Chien underwent rehabilitation at the hospital with specialist clinicians teaching him to walk.

Chien amazed the team by taking his first steps- legs in plaster- only days after his surgery.
