What is Pet Orthopaedic Surgery?
Technically, Orthopaedic surgery is defined as the surgical correction required to correct any form of bone defect. Soft tissue surgeries accompany bone surgeries since most of the bones are surrounded by soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, muscles or skin.
Does my Pet Need Orthopaedic Surgery?
Pets move in the same domain as we do. So, they are also vulnerable to the same risks as us humans. Pet bones are fragile and can take only so much pressure. Most orthopaedic surgeries are performed to repair fracture, correct dislocated bones or old-age joint problems. Surgeries are required for:
- Ruptured cruciate ligament
- Luxating patella
- Ligament and Tendon injuries
- Joint Replacement

- Some details into our Orthopedic Surgeries
Arthroscopy in Dogs
Our vet performs arthroscopy on the affected joint by inserting a camera along with arthroscope. This high-tech technique is less invasive and provides better imaging. This technique is used for shoulder instability disorders, shoulder Osteochondrosis Dissecans and elbow dysplasia.
Cruciate Rupture in Dogs
This commonly causes hind limb lameness. Every year, we perform many canine Cruciate ligament tears. Our veterinarians prefer ‘Tibial plateau leveling procedure’ for treating large dogs. If left untreated, this can further cause irreversible arthritis.
Traumatic events can cause bone fracture both in cats and dogs. We treat a wide range of canine/feline fractures including jaw, pelvic, spinal, growth plate, limb and other complex fractures. We have the diagnosis technology including fluoroscopy and digital radiography to aid surgeries. We use metal frames and orthopedic pins to stabilize joints.
Instable hip joints are treated with extreme care at Napa Valley Animal Hospital. Difficulty in moving and weakness of hind quarters are the most common complaints among dogs.
