What Medical Conditions Can Orthopedic Surgery Correct?
When your animal companion needs orthopedic care, consider contacting Rock Creek Veterinary Hospital to find out if orthopedic surgery is a treatment option. You might be surprised to learn about the many medical conditions that can be corrected or improved through this technologically-advanced treatment option. These include:
Certain Congenital Conditions
Congenital conditions entail any condition that your pet was born with. Oftentimes, congenital conditions aren’t evident until the animal grows into adulthood. It is then that the condition may cause serious lifestyle and health problems, such as digestive problems relating to spine malformation and more.
Elbow dysplasia can result after an injury or as a result of a genetic mutation. Either way, your veterinarian can help.
Fractures and Breaks
If your animal companion suffers any kind of fracture or break from an accident or other injury, it’s essential to get them to your veterinarian as soon as possible. The sooner that orthopedic surgery can be performed, the better the possible outcome.

When this type of injury occurs in both legs, the level of lameness can be devastating, impacting your pet’s emotional well-being and overall physical health. Fortunately, there are orthopedic surgery solutions that can correct the problem.
