Orthopaedic Surgery

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.

Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:

Cranial cruciate ligament repair
Fracture (broken bone) repair
Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases

Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, may need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet. Where possible, we try to organise a mobile surgical specialist to visit our clinic, so we can continue to care for your pets needs, and they are in a familiar environment. Other cases will be referred to the amazing surgical teams at Animal Referral Hospital Brisbane (ARH) or Veterinary Specialist Services Underwood (VSS). More information on these hospitals can be found on our 'Specialist Referrals' page.
