Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery involves surgery of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Fractured bones and torn ligaments are some of the most common injuries seen by the veterinary surgeon. Advanced techniques are used to adequately stabilize these injuries so that the pet can heal normally.

Our hospital offers a wide range of Orthopedic Surgery services to cope with a large variety of injuries and conditions. In the case of a broken leg, for example, our surgeon may perform such procedures as bone plating, pinning and/or wiring to successfully mend the fractured bones. On the other hand, if your pet experiences a knee ligament injury, procedures such as a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) may be recommended. Dislocated knee caps may sometimes require surgery to minimize pain and improve your pet's quality of life.

You can be assured that Dr. Don Morshead, our Board-Certified specialist in surgery, is committed to achieving the best outcome possible for your pet.
