Overview

Veterinary orthopedic surgery is a term used for surgical repair of a pet's bone or joint. It treats bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles—areas in which your pet may feel pain in from a variety of conditions. If veterinary orthopedic surgery is recommended for your pet, we will do everything possible to keep them safe and comfortable before, during, and after the surgery.

Why would my pet need orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery can help pets who suffer from joint problems, torn ligaments, broken bones, and can even help correct congenital problems. Most orthopedic surgery is focused around the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL), sometimes referred to as the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). Veterinary orthopedic surgeons specialize in skeletal disorders in dogs, cats, and horses.

Orthopedic surgery is the most effective procedure for repairing broken bones and correcting joint issues.

Recovery

Recovery for orthopedic surgery usually takes a great deal of time. After the bone or joint has healed, your pet will begin rehabilitation, which will focus on increasing the strength, function and mobility of the joints and the muscles.
