Pet Orthopedic Surgery

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Repair

The most common orthopedic injury we treat is a torn ACL. We use the Lateral Suture technique to repair this injury. On average, Riverbend Animal Hospital surgically treats over 250 torn ACLs annually.

Patellar Luxation Repair

Patellar luxation is most commonly a congenital problem. To minimize arthritis in the future, it is best to repair these locations before the patient is two years old.

Tendon Repair

The most common tendon injury we see is the torn Achilles tendon, but we also repair torn tendons.

Femoral Head and Neck Excision

This procedure treats Legg Perthes disease, fractures, and severe arthritis of the hip joint. It relieves pain and improves hip function.

Osteochondritis Dessicans Repair

OCD is a congenital problem resulting in a painful cartilage defect in a joint. It occurs most commonly in the shoulder, elbow, knee, and hock. Surgery will decrease pain, increase mobility, and minimize arthritis down the road.

Fragmented Coronoid Process and Ununited Anconeal Process Repair

FCP and UAP are forms of elbow dysplasia, a congenital problem seen most commonly in rapidly growing large breed dogs, especially retrievers. Surgery relieves pain, increases function, and minimizes future arthritis.

Fracture Repairs

We repair all types of fractures using multiple techniques.
