Orthopaedic surgery deals with the prevention or correction of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments. This often involves investigating and treating lameness, limb deformity and joint pain.
Our most commonly treated joint conditions include cranial cruciate ligament rupture, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia and patellar luxation.
We see many animals that have fractured bones as a result of trauma or that have limb deformities that benefit from correction. Orthopaedics does not only involve surgery and covers the medical treatment of arthritis.
Our highly trained surgeons investigate and treat a wide range of Orthopaedic conditions in both cats and dogs. Some of the surgeries we undertake:
- Cruciate ligament repair including Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)
- Patella luxation surgery
- Femoral head and neck excision
- Fracture repair
