Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few.
Orthopaedic surgical cases are referred to a specialist veterinary surgeon to optimize your pet's treatment and post-operative recovery. Most orthopaedic cases require at least 24 hours in hospital after surgery, and round the clock monitoring and pain relief. Having access to a 24hour facility is extremely important. Our veterinarians' high level of expertise will ensure your pet is sent to the specialist most appropriate to their diagnosis.
Orthopaedic referrals include cranial cruciate ligament repair, fractured (broken) bones, spinal surgery and bone cancer cases.
