Orthopedic Surgery

600 Ortho2

We offer different types of orthopedic surgeries. Occasionally, there will be a need for a referral to a board certified orthopedic surgeon for complex surgeries.

  • Bone Fractures - Our experienced veterinarians can place metal pins to repair fractures.
  • Pinning - Stabilizes the fracture by inserting a long stainless steel rod into the middle of the bone across from the fractured area.
  • External Fixation - Stabilizes fractures using a series of pins on the outside of the leg that pass through the skin and into the bone on either side of the fracture.
  • CCL Repair - The cranial crucial ligament in a dog’s knee can be torn completely. The surgery will use high strength suture to replace the ligament.
  • FHO (Femoral head osteotomy) - This procedure removes the head and neck of the femur to help alleviate pain.
  • Patella Luxation - This procedure deepens the groove in which the dog’s kneecap sits.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding these procedures or if you think your pet may benefit from a procedure.
