Crawford said Ferrari needed several surgeries to clear infections and dead tissue in his chest before the final surgery to help him eat again.
On Tuesday, Crawford operated on Ferrari to stretch his stomach up to meet the remaining part of his esophagus.
"His esophagus connects to his stomach right in front of the heart behind the breast bone," said Crawford.
Crawford said no one who looks at Ferrari will be able to tell the difference once he's healed.
"If all goes well, he can eat normally again," he said.
