Bone and Joint Surgery

Veterinary Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery involves 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 a result of trauma. Advanced techniques including the use of steel plates and screws or elaborate bone pin and clamp systems are required to adequately stabilize these injuries so that the pet can heal normally.

What is a Veterinary Surgery Specialist?

Veterinarians wishing to become board certified must complete a three-year residency program, meet specific training and caseload requirements, as well as perform research and have their research published. This process is supervised by current ACVS Diplomates, ensuring consistency in training and adherence to high standards. Some of the surgeries performed at VCA South Shore (Weymouth) Animal Hospital include:

  • Fracture repair
  • Patella Luxation repair
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture repair
  • TPLO
  • TTA
  • Repair of Congenital Conditions
