Small Animal Surgery

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:

  1. Arthrodesis of the carpus and tarsus
  2. Cruciate ligament rupture
    1. Modified de Angelis for small dogs and cats
    2. Triple Tibial Osteotomy for medium to large breed dogs
  3. Fractures of the long bones (e.g. radius, ulna, tibia, femur, humerus)
  4. Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis
  5. Ligament repairs e.g. carpal collateral rupture, stifle collateral rupture
  6. Patella luxation surgery
