Orthopedic surgery may be necessary for a variety of reasons, including fracture repair, cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture repair, degenerative conditions (e.g. hip/elbow dysplasia), infections and tumours.
Our most common orthopedic surgery involves tearing or rupture of the CCL of the knee, a very common soft tissue injury in large breed dogs. There are many procedures available for CCL repair, including tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) and lateral fabella technique. Based on the size and conformation of your pet, we will recommend the most appropriate procedure. These surgeries are routinely performed by Dr. Warren at our hospital.
Dr. Warren has undergone extensive continuing education to be able to perform an array of orthopedic procedures including luxating patella repair, fracture repair and femoral head ostectomy. All our patients are monitored by an experienced veterinary technician and advanced equipment tracking their vital signs (including heart rate, respiratory rate, ECG and blood pressure) while under anesthesia
