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 our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:
- Cranial cruciate ligament repair, the ACL equivalent in people.
- 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. We now have the facilities and connections with a specialist surgeon who is able to come to our clinic and do the complicated orthopaedic surgery right here! This means we're able to provide the best supportive care for your patient and monitor the process without you having to worry about going out to another clinic.
Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
