The veteran traveled from Victoria's Lucerne Glen to Melbourne for groundbreaking surgery using a titanium heel made with a 3D printer.

'I never knew the surgery would be so successful or so important,' Chandler said . '.

'I think this is probably the first time Victoria has done this.

'I didn't realize it would be the first time in the world.

'Chandler's feet have been bothering him for years, but he didn't know he had cancer in his Achilles tendon until April.

'This idea is one of the things we often fantasize about --

Can I make exactly the same thing as a patient that anyone in my field often thinks about?

'So there's something that can be copied, which makes a big difference in what we can actually achieve.
