Orthopedic Pet Surgery
Cruciate, patella luxation, and hip surgery
Orthopedic surgery is not one of the types of surgery offered at Miramar Animal Hospital. Rather than referring to a single surgery, orthopedic surgery is an umbrella term used to describe several bone and joint repair procedures.
Any pet that undergoes orthopedic surgery will require at least two weeks of restricted exercise and constant monitoring. It’s important to understand that almost all orthopedic surgeries come with a lengthy recovery time and, depending on how well your pet is doing towards the end of their recovery, we may recommend canine rehabilitation.
