Orthopaedic

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 veterinarians’ high level of expertise and a well-equipped surgical suite at Gawler allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament repair
  • Simple fracture (broken bone) repair
  • Hip ball removal surgery
  • Patellar (knee-cap) surgery
  • Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases

Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, complicated fractures and some cranial cruciate ligament ruptures, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Your veterinarian will discuss with you what surgery is needed for your pet, and whether referral or in clinic surgery is recommended.
