Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few.
Our practice can perform some orthopaedic surgeries, however if we are unable to provide the specific service that your pet needs, we can either refer them to a specialist or have a surgeon come into our hospital and perform the surgery here.
Procedures required may include:
Cranial cruciate ligament repair
Fracture (broken bone) repair
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.
