Bone and Joint Surgery

Our hospital offers Orthopedic Surgery Services. If your pet breaks its leg, procedures such as bone plating, pinning and/or wiring may be necessary to fix the fractured bones. If your pet experiences a knee ligament injury (for example, a cruciate ligament tear), procedures such as a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) or extracapsular repair may be recommended. Dislocating (luxating) knee caps (patellas) may sometimes require surgery to minimize pain and improve your pet's quality of life. If there is a problem inside a joint (severe arthritis, bone chips, etc.), surgeons may recommend arthroscopy (a tiny video camera placed inside the joint) to remove the source of your pet's pain. In some cases it is best to open the joint for a more thorough surgical approach. Our surgeons medically manage and perform surgery to correct a wide variety of orthopedic conditions, including: Joint problems: Shoulder instability, Elbow dysplasia, Carpal instability, Hip dysplasia, Hip luxation, Patella luxation, Stifle ligament insufficiency, Cranial cruciate ligament disease, Tarsal instability, Arthrodesis (joint fusions), Diagnostic/therapeutic arthrocentesis, Osteochondritis Dissecans, Arthroscopy, Bone conditions: Fracture repair (standard AOS/ASIF), Treatment of fracture diseases (nonunions/malunions, etc.), Surgical correction of angular limb deformities, Bone grafting/enhancement of bone healing.
