Orthopedic Pet Surgery
Amputation, CCL Repair & FHO for pets.
Orthopedic surgery is just one of the many types of surgery offered at St. Charles Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Miles is experienced in orthopedic surgery, and has performing this type of surgery for over 30 years. Rather than referring to a single surgery, orthopedic surgery is an umbrella term used to describe several bone and joint repair procedures.
Conditions that can be treated with orthopedic surgery include:
- Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) Repair
- Femoral Head and Neck Ostectomy (FHO)
- Patella Luxation Repair
Any pet that undergoes orthopedic surgery will require at least two weeks of restricted exercise and constant monitoring. It’s important to understand that almost all orthopedic surgeries come with a lengthy recovery time and, depending on how well your pet is doing towards the end of their recovery, we may recommend canine rehabilitation.
