There are many orthopaedic problems that can be addressed in a general practice setting, while others are best referred to dedicated specialist centres. For procedures that require more specialised equipment and/or intensive post-operative care, please contact your nearest specialist centre.
Some of the procedures that can be treated in a general practice setting include:
- Arthrodesis of the carpus and tarsus
- Cruciate ligament rupture
- Fractures of the long bones (e.g. radius, ulna, tibia, femur, humerus)
- Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis
- Ligament repairs e.g. carpal collateral rupture, stifle collateral rupture
- Patella luxation surgery
