Dancing Again Is Veronika’s Dream

Dancing Again Is Veronika’s Dream

This five-part series tells moving stories from the perspectives of the patients, their mothers, fathers, wives and friends as well as from that of their doctors. This episode features eight-year-old Veronika, who, because of the rare Proteus syndrome, suffers from enormous feet. For years her adoptive parents looked for a doctor who could help reduce the size of Veronika’s feet. Then they found Wolfram Wenz, "Dr Foot” at the orthopedic clinic in Heidelberg. Veronika’s case is one of the biggest challenges of the foot surgeon’s career to date.
