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 surgeons Dr Susan Bilbow and Dr Tony Matthews have a 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
- Fracture (broken bone) repair
- Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
Complicated orthopaedic cases, may need to be referred to a visiting specialist orthopaedic surgeon which means your pet can stay at Pinjarra Vetrinary Hospital whilst being treated. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
