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.
Visiting specialist and friend of the clinic, Dr Geoff Robins uses our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite to perform routine and complex orthopaedic surgical procedures. These may include:
- Cranial cruciate ligament repair
- Fracture (broken bone) repair
- Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
If you feel your pet requires orthopaedic treatment, an initial appointment and x-rays are required with our vets. They will then arrange for surgery or a secondary consultation with the specialist. Your pet does not have to be a current patient of the clinic. Many local clinics refer their patients to Stones Corner Vet for orthopaedic surgery.
