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 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

  • Stabilisation of luxating patellas (unstable knee-caps)

  • Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases

Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, may need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. In some cases we are able to arrange for a specialist surgeon to visit our clinic and treat your pet.  Other more complicated cases may require visiting a specialist centre.  Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
