Orthopaedics is the field of medicine and surgery that treats an injury and disease of the musculoskeletal system; that is the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons of the body.
Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s well equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require.
We can treat many orthopaedic conditions, but some of our most common procedures include treatment of:
- Cranial cruciate ligament tear
- Patellar luxation
- Bone fractures
- Elbow dysplasia
- Hip dysplasia
- 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.
