Any operation that is performed on bones or ligaments is included in the field of orthopaedic surgery. It encompasses a wide range of operations, including, to name just a few examples, fracture restorations, ligament maintenance, and spinal injuries. Because of the high level of competence possessed by our veterinarians and the presence of a fully prepared operation theatre at our clinic, we are able to undertake some orthopaedic surgical operations on your pet, should that become necessary.

In addition to canine cruciate operations, hip deformation, elbow aplasia, shoulder instability, bone metastases excision, and joint repair surgery are also examples of therapeutic operations we can perform. Every animal that arrives with skeletal or ligament problems is evaluated with a battery of diagnostic tests to identify the best course of action. This may involve anything from anti-inflammatory medication to surgical intervention. Although many pets may require lifelong care, their quality of life and expected lifespan can greatly increase with the right treatment.

Orthopaedic problems that are more complicated will have to be transferred to an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in complex cases. Our doctors will examine each patient as an individual and offer guidance that is tailored to both you and your pet’s needs.

We take great satisfaction in the fact that we have a wonderful team at Vets at North Rocks, which means that you can feel at ease realizing that the care of your pet is being provided by a skilled group of individuals. Our veterinarians have acquired specific interests and expertise in all aspects of orthopaedic surgeries, and they conduct the most recent surgical procedures that are available with the best possible equipment and up to date care. This allows us to provide our patients with the best possible treatment for the best possible outcomes.
