Orthopedic surgery is a broad term for surgical repair of the bone or joint. A canine or feline that has broken or fractured a bone due to trauma, or one that is suffering from a congenital condition that affects the joint, may require orthopedic surgery. To make surgical corrections to the bone, the dog will be referred to a veterinary specialist with training and the appropriate tools. Orthopedic Surgery is the most effective procedure for correcting an affected bone or joint and returning the patient to a normal state of health. Some orthopedic surgeries include:

  • Cruciate ligament repair
  • Limb deformity correction
  • Minimally invasive fracture surgery
  • Total elbow replacement
  • Total hip replacement
  • Ligament and tendon reconstruction
  • Total knee replacement
  • Hip and elbow dysplasia repair
