Orthopedic Surgery in Eugene
Orthopedic surgery has advanced benefits for aging senior pets, and can be highly beneficial in treating multiple health conditions as your young pet ages. Differing from general surgical procedures, orthopedic surgery requires advanced skill and knowledge in the study and functioning of the musculoskeletal system.
Orthopedic surgery may be necessary if your pet suffers from diseases of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, or any other disease of the musculoskeletal system. Common orthopedic surgical procedures can include hip replacement, bone fracture repair, removal of bone spurs causing arthritic pain as well as stabilization surgery for ligament and tendon injuries.
Some common orthopedic diseases that we treat successfully through surgery include:
- Cranial Cruciate Ligament repair
- Luxating Patella repair
Often diagnosed during your pet’s annual exam, symptoms associated with several orthopedic conditions include difficulty standing, limping, inflammation and swelling, and decrease in activity levels. If your pet is exhibiting one or many of these symptoms, be sure to have your veterinarian perform a thorough physical exam as soon as possible.
Feel free to contact us regarding any of the above orthopedic conditions, and we would be happy to explain them in further detail. If orthopedic surgery is the right choice for your pet, you can be assured our team of skilled veterinarians and staff will provide the highest quality in post-operative and pre-operative care to ensure their comfort and safety.
