Orthopedic- Diagnostics And Extensive Surgery
Orthopedic surgery refers to bone surgery. There are many different situations where bone surgery may be necessary. The more common types of surgeries are fracture repairs, cruciate ligament rupture repair (knee joint), dislocating patella’s (knee caps) and cruciate repair with patella mechanism alignment surgery. The method of repair will depend on the location, the nature of the of fracture and all factors such as age, weight, blood results and other related factors that will optimize the results. We are proud to have the very best in advanced orthopedic equipment from Depuy Synthes Canada. These orthopedic procedures are performed at both our hospitals. TPLO is the surgical technique that we perform for all larger dogs with cruciate insufficiency (ACL rupture).
