Orthopaedic surgery is surgery on the bones, joints or associated tendons or ligaments. It includes, but is not limited to, procedures such as fracture repairs, luxating joint repairs and cruciate ligament repairs, all of which are regularly performed in our hospitals by our experienced vets.
Together with our experienced veterinarians, our skilled surgical nurses and our hospitals’ fully equipped surgical suite, we are able to perform many orthopaedic procedures to the highest of standard without referral to a specialist clinic.
Visiting Veterinary Specialists
We are proud of our state-of-the-art facilities, highly skilled veterinary surgeons and nursing staff, however sometimes complicated cases do arise that may require referral to a specialist for surgery or on-going treatment. We have visiting Specialist Surgeons, Ophthalmologists, Cardiologists and Ultrastanographers that regularly visit our hospitals and are always available to work with us within our own hospitals.
Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice and treatment options for you and your pet.
