Orthopedic Surgery

At Midwest Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians are able to manage a variety of orthopedic conditions in pets, which include disorders of bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. Lameness is one of the most common ailments encountered by pet owners.

While some minor conditions causing pets to limp can resolve without intervention, any persistant lameness requires veterinary evaluation. Using the latest imaging technology and diagnostic procedures, our specialists can accurately diagnose the cause of orthopedic issues and recommend the most beneficial procedures. Midwest Veterinary Hospital veterinarians remain current through extensive professional development and continuing education in order to offer the latest advances in surgical techniques and perioperative care.

Orthopedic Surgical Procedures include (but are not limited to):

  1. Cranial cruciate ligament repair
  2. Other tendon and ligament repair
  3. Fracture repair
  4. Repair of joint luxations
  5. Treatment of congenital and developmental orthopedic diseases
  6. Management of chronic lameness

As with all surgeries at Midwest Veterinary Hospital, orthopedic surgery patients will be evaluated prior to surgery through a complete perioperative assessment. All patients receive the benefits of continuous monitoring; a proactive, multimodal approach to pain management; and postoperative monitoring and care by our doctors and highly trained technicians.
