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. Here at Kingsway Veterinary Centre we now do the TTA technique for the repair of cranial cruciate ruptures. This technique has been shown to be particularly effective and can be more cost effective than other techniques, with as good an end result.
Fracture (broken bone) repair
Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Luxation patellas, espcially in toy breeds
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.
