The orthopaedic surgery team will provide you and your pet with a comprehensive assessment of your pet’s orthopaedic health. The assessment usually begins with detailed questions about your pet’s problem followed by a gait evaluation and complete orthopaedic and neurologic assessment. The specialists will usually request additional tests such as x-rays, CT or MRI scans to better diagnose the condition. Based on these results, our orthopaedic surgeons will discuss the best treatment plan, any required surgeries and their expected recovery process.
Some conditions within joints can be diagnosed and treated via key-hole surgery (arthroscopy). These procedures usually result in less pain, shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery from surgery. Our specialists are skilled at repairing broken bones, performing hip replacement surgery, correcting bone growth defects as well as many other conditions.
