Cuyler: ExFix Device


When he was just 9, Cuyler was hit by an SUV. After months of surgeries, his family thought he would never walk again. Then they found Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Jacksonville and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Eric Loveless. He fitted Cuyler with a device called an ExFix to help lengthen and strengthen the bones in his leg. The result? He was up and walking the day after surgery.
