Fracture Repair

Pinning of fractures.

Cruciate ligament repair

The cruciate ligaments are located in the knee joint. Excessive stress and weakness of the tissue sometimes cause the ligaments to get over-stretched or torn. This happens mostly in mid aged to older larger dogs, but it can happen in all species, breeds and age groups. The typical symptoms of an injured cruciate ligament is a sudden lameness on one hind-leg and they are often so severe that dogs do not put the paw to the ground.

There are several surgical techniques that help stabilize the joint and reduce the development of arthritis. As there is no case equal to another there are no firm rules as to when and whether to perform the surgery and every patient has to be evaluated according to the individual circumstances.

Excision arthroplasty

Arthroplasty is a term used to describe the surgical repair of an abnormal hip joint.
