Orthopedic surgery may be necessary for a variety of reasons, including fracture repair, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture repair, degenerative conditions (e.g. hip/elbow dysplasia), infections and tumours.
Our most common orthopedic surgery involves tearing or rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament, a very common soft tissue injury in large breed dogs. There are many procedures available for ACL/CCL repair, including TPLO and lateral fabella technique. Based on the size and conformation of your pet, we will recommend the most appropriate procedure.
