Orthopedic Surgery/Care

 

Orthopedic surgery for pets consists of invasive and non-invasive surgical procedures. These procedures can encompass joints, bone, and associated muscles, tendon, ligament, and cartilage.

Orthopedic issues are generally characterized by the part of the body that is affected. There is also a further distinction made between whether the orthopedic issue derives from birth (congenital) and whether it develops over the course of your pet’s life.
