Orthopedic Surgery

When bones and joints are the problems, we are here to help.  Orthopedic surgery involves a specialized class of surgical tools and techniques. Our surgeon Dr. Lee has undergone extra training to equip him with the skills necessary to safely and successfully perform a selected number of orthopedic procedures. Your pet will be evaluated with a physical exam and X-rays and a surgical plan proposed and discussed with you. Surgeries that are beyond our scope we will refer to a Board-Certified surgical specialist.

  • Cruciate rupture repair (torn ACL)
