Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic problems can inhibit a pet’s ability to happily walk, play, and stand up. We are proud to offer limited orthopedic surgery options while concentrating on enabling our patients to live comfortably. Orthopedic surgery is a corrective skeletal surgery intended to alleviate problems with tendons, ligaments, joints, bones, and muscles.

If your pet has been involved in an accident or has experienced trauma, prompt X-rays can determine whether bone fracture or further injury has occurred. Pets don’t always exhibit external indications of pain and may need to undergo orthopedic surgery to fix or prevent complications.

Common orthopedic surgical procedures performed: 

  • Femoral Head and Neck Ostectomy (FHO)
  • Selected amputations
  • Joint injections for regenerative techniques (see the Regenerative Medicine section)

Please contact our office today to determine if your pet is a good candidate for skeletal corrective surgery.
