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. In many cases, there are multiple injuries to the pet, often as the result of trauma. Advanced techniques are used to adequately stabilize these injuries so that the pet can heal normally.
At VCA Kootenai Animal Hospital, we also offer procedures such as TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy).
