Orthopedic Pet Surgery

A lameness exam with one of our board certified surgeons can identify cruciate, patella luxation, hip, and many other conditions.

Orthopedic surgery is just one of the many types of surgery offered at Broward Veterinary Specialists. 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 fractured bones, it can also be used to treat congenital defects such as elbow dysplasia and patellar luxation.

Conditions that can be treated with orthopedic surgery include:

  • Amputation
  • Angular Limb Deformity
  • Arthrodesis
  • Bone Tumors in Cats and Dogs
  • Canine Hip Dysplasia
  • Cranial Cruciate Ligament Disease
  • Extracapsular Cruciate Ligament Repair
  • Fracture Repair
  • Hip Luxation (FHO)
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD)
  • Patella Luxation
  • Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy
  • Tibial Tuberosity Advancement

Any pet that undergoes orthopedic surgery will require at least 6-8 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.

If your pet is showing any signs of illness, call us at 954-842-4000 to schedule a consultation with one of our specialists.
