Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and replacing dislocations to name a few.
Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. In more complicated procedures, we engage a specialist orthopaedic veterinarian surgeon. This referral specialist will come to our clinic.
Surgeries may include:
● Cranial cruciate ligament repair, eg D’Angelis and Triple Tibial Osteotomy
● Medial patella luxation
● Fracture repair
● Hip dislocation
● Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
