Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few.
Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:
Cranial cruciate ligament repair
Patellar luxation repair
Fracture (broken bone) repair
Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
Please note that we perform all surgery at the Bligh Park Pet Health Centre, Rifle Range Road, Bligh Park where we have full surgery, xray and hospital facilities. However pets can be dropped off and picked up from the Richmond clinic. Please discuss your needs with our reception staff. Thank you.
