Orthopedic Surgery Info
Keep reading to find detailed information on the most common orthopedic surgeries we perform to get your pet up and running again.
EXTRACAPSULAR ACL REPAIR
This surgery is a little less invasive then TPLO, however it is also not as sturdy of a repair. It is reserved for very small dogs (weighing less than 10 lbs) or for sedentary dogs weighing up to 25 lbs.
LUXATING PATELLA CORRECTION
This surgery re-establishes proper kneecap tracking to keep it from popping out of joint. Patellar luxation has been described as the most common congenital malformation in dogs. Small-breed dogs are affected ten times more than large-breed dogs.
STEM CELL THERAPY
Stem cell therapy provides potent anti-inflammatory effects and pain relief for 80% of pets with chronic arthritis, and without the potential side effects of traditional medications.
