Orthopedic Pet Surgery

Cruciate, patella luxation, and hip surgery

Orthopedic surgery is just one of the many types of surgery offered at Aspen Grove Veterinary Care. Rather than referring to a single surgery, orthopedic surgery is an umbrella term used to describe several bone and joint repair procedures.

Though orthopedic surgery is most commonly used to treat broken and fractured bones, it can also be used to treat congenital defects such as elbow dysplasia and patellar luxation. Joint replacement, such as total knee replacement, is also considered an orthopedic surgery.

Any pet that undergoes orthopedic surgery will require at least two weeks of restricted exercise and constant monitoring. It’s important to understand that almost all orthopedic surgeries come with a lengthy recovery time and, depending on how well your pet is doing towards the end of their recovery, we may recommend canine rehabilitation.

We work with mobile board-certified specialty surgeons for more advanced orthopedic surgeries. After an initial exam with one of our doctors, we can accommodate the scheduling of an advanced surgery to be completed here at our facility. These surgeries include but are not limited to:

  • Tibial-Plateau-Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)
  • Medial Patellar Luxation (MPL)
  •  Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO)
  •  Fracture Repair
