Orthopedic surgery refers to bone surgery. There are many different situations where bone surgery may be necessary including leg fractures, hip dysplasia, and knee injuries. Leg fractures are one of the most common orthopedic problems presented at our clinic and usually result from a mishap with an automobile. They can be treated in a variety of ways depending on the location and type of fracture. A cast can be applied to the leg to treat certain fractures; however, many fractures will require surgical intervention.
When bone surgery is required, we feel fortunate to have the services of Dr. Sukh Kahlon and Dr. Dave Francis. They are veterinarians who perform orthopedic surgeries, and we have been trusting one or the other of them with ours for the last 10 years. They are mobile practitioners, which means that rather than sending you and your pet to an unfamiliar facility, we can have them bring all their equipment and do the procedure here with us.
