In addition to high-quality soft tissue and routine veterinary surgeries, Black Creek Veterinary Hospital also offers a range of professional orthopedic services for dogs and cats. Orthopedic procedures are different from other types of surgery, and deal expressly with treating conditions that affect the musculoskeletal systems of pets. Members of our veterinary staff trained in these special surgeries are on hand and ready to care for your pet if he or she should every need us.
Orthopedic surgery encapsulates a number of procedures that can help animal companions overcome serious injury, muscle and joint pain, and degenerative conditions cause discomfort and limit mobility. Drawing on a strong base of training and experience in veterinary orthopedics, our doctors provide:
- Basic fracture repairs
- Cruciate ligament surgery
- Corrective treatment for hip dysplasia, joint luxation, and chronic pain associated with tendon and bone wear.
- Amputations and salvage procedures designed to save a pet’s life during instances of severe trauma.
We apply the very same high standards for safety and pain prevention used in our routine surgical services. Above all, our primary concern is to improve the overall quality of life of your pet. As such, our veterinarians always take the utmost care to ensure that every patient receives the most attentive, compassionate, and beneficial surgeries available.
These specialized procedures are administered strictly on a case-by-case basis. Black Creek Veterinary Hospital reserves orthopedic surgeries for pets following comprehensive diagnoses to determine each patient’s needs.
