Orthopedic Surgery

Surgical Suite

We use a diplomat orthopedic veterinary surgeon to treat congenital and acquired injuries of bones, joints and the spine utilizing the newest bone plating, pinning and fixation devices and methodologies.

We provide surgery for:

Fractures

Elbow Dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia

Femoral Head Ostectomy

Medial Patella Luxation 

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture

Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy  

Orthopedic trauma is managed by procedures designed to stabilize fractures, treat soft tissue injuries and promote rapid recovery. A variety of  minimally invasive techniques are employed where possible to promote rapid diagnosis and repair. These techniques include:  percutaneous plating and fracture stabilization, which is made possible with intraoperative radiology, and arthroscopic evaluation and treatment of joint (shoulder, elbow, and knee) problems. 

We work closely with our own canine rehabilitation center at Squibnocket Animal Center to provide a focus that emphasizes an integrated approach to preventing, diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal injuries with the goal of optimizing the healing and recovery process to allow peak performance in athletes, working dogs and everyday pets.
