Orthopedic Surgery Basics

Orthopedic surgery helps to correct injuries or diseases of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, or other skeletal structures in dogs and cats. Gold-Standard orthopedic care involves the use of advanced diagnostics, modern surgical tools, effective post-surgical treatment such as pain management and rehabilitation, and a surgeon who dedicates their career to being at the cutting edge of the industry. We are proud to have all of these critical pieces, as quality orthopedic surgery can make a significant difference in the quality of a pet’s life.

Types of Procedures

Extracapsular Cranial Cruciate Ligament Stabilization

Extracapsular stabilization involves stabilizing the stifle by placing a non-absorbable suture material around the lateral fabella and through a hole in the tibial crest mimicking the pattern of the cranial cruciate ligament. The suture typically provides only temporary stabilization and may loosen over time.
