Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs, and spinal surgery, to name a few.
Our veterinarians’ expertise and our practice’s surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These include:
Cranial cruciate ligament repair (select procedures only)
Fracture (broken bone) repair (select procedures only)
Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Many procedures we do not routinely perform are referred to the experienced and highly-capable hands of the excellent surgeons at Southern Highlands Veterinary Centre. Our veterinarians and referred clients continue to be impressed with the quality of their work and have full faith in their ability to treat any referred cases.
Some complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
