VETERINARY ORTHOPEDIC SURGERYVeterinary orthopedic surgical treatments include disorders and conditions that affect the bones, joints, and related structures.
A veterinary surgeon can provide your pet with access to the same advanced surgical procedures that are available to humans. The pain caused by an injury or problem with the joints can be temporarily alleviated with medication, but veterinary orthopedic surgery may be required to repair the problem and minimize lasting damage.
Veterinary orthopedic surgery can correct congenital abnormalities, traumatic injuries, and disorders of the bones and joints, including:
- Elbow dysplasia
- Hyperextension injuries Internal plating for fracture fixation
- External skeletal fixation to repair fractures
- Patella luxation
- Osteochonritis dissecans (OCD)
- Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)
- Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA)
- Arthrodesis Carpal, tarsal bone injuries, and luxations and more.
