Orthopedic surgery is the surgery of bones. This includes hip surgery, knee surgery and repairing broken bones. Most orthopedic surgery is preformed by a board certified surgeon who travels to our clinic. This type of surgery can be very difficult and requires considerable expertise and training. After your pet has orthopedic surgery he or she will require a great deal of care at home. Strict cage rest is usually required for several weeks followed by a routine of physical therapy to help your pet regain use of the affected limbs.
