Common Orthopedic Procedures
Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)
Cranial Cruciate Ligament rupture and disorders of the stifle are the most common orthopedic problem encountered in the dog. Surgical correction with the TPLO technique is a preferred method by many veterinary specialists but is expensive. Advances in technology and equipment has made this procedure available and more affordable in a general veterinary practice setting.
Medial Patellar Luxation
When the knee cap does not stay in the intended groove in the knee, and rides on the inside of the joint - pain, swelling and limping can occur. A thorough assessment of the joint and multiple corrective measures can be performed to correct this bio-mechanical deficiency.
Femoral Head Ostectomy
Osteo-arthritis of the canine hip can be handled medically or surgically. A total body approach to hip arthritis offers the best outcomes. For those patients that require surgical care and a total hip replacement is not an option, a procedure called an FHO may be advisable.
Trauma involving your four legged family member is stressful. Accident-related broken bones and damaged joints can occur often and require prompt medical attention. The cost to fix fractures at specialty hospitals can be quite expensive and we can offer a viable, less costly option.
