Orthopedic Pet Surgery

Cruciate, patella luxation, and hip surgery

Orthopedic surgery is just one of the many types of surgery offered at New Tampa Animal Hospital. Rather than referring to a single surgery, orthopedic surgery is an umbrella term used to describe several bone and joint repair procedures.

Though orthopedic surgery is most commonly used to treat fractured bones, it can also be used to treat congenital defects such as elbow dysplasia and patellar luxation.

Conditions that we can treat with orthopedic surgery include:

  • Amputation
  • Fractured Bones

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 its recovery, we may recommend canine rehabilitation.

Schedule an appointment by calling us at (813) 949-8448 or request online to learn more about orthopedic surgery.
