Cruciate, patella luxation, and hip surgery
Orthopedic surgery is just one of the many types of surgery offered at Best Friends Animal Hospital and Urgent Care Center. Rather than referring to a single surgery, orthopedic surgery is an umbrella term used to describe several bone and joint repair procedures.
We offer a variety of orthopedic procedures, from fracture repairs to cruciate ligament fixation. For fractures, we offer bone plating in addition to more traditional methods such as pins and wires. We offer TPLOs for cruciate ligament injuries and disk surgery for intervertebral disk disease.
Any pet that undergoes orthopedic surgery will require at least two weeks of restricted exercise and constant monitoring. It’s important to understand that almost all orthopedic surgeries come with a lengthy recovery time and, depending on how well your pet is doing towards the end of their recovery, we may recommend canine rehabilitation.
