Orthopaedic surgery in small animals has become very advanced in the last 10 years and now there are very few conditions that cannot be treated successfully. The options for fracture repair, spinal surgery and joint surgery are very comprehensive.
There are very few fractures that are classified as beyond treatment. Spinal surgery can provide more predictable results and hence prognosis indicators.
Total joint replacement has become common surgery and successful treatment for cruciate repair has become realised. We have been at the coalface of small animal orthopaedic surgery for 20 years through the experience of Dr W. McCartney.
