In previous decades general veterinarians performed all types of surgical procedures from orthopedics to ophthalmology. Today, veterinary specialists are available in virtually all disciplines including canine orthopedics. Of course this has been the norm in human medicine and surgery for some time and veterinary medicine is steadily following suit.
In general, veterinary specialists see cases requiring advanced training, expertise, skill or equipment for the most up to date diagnosis and treatments. Colorado Canine Orthopedics’ surgeons have dedicated their careers to the diagnosis and treatment of canine orthopedic and spinal surgical problems. Together our surgeons have well over 50 years of combined experience and have expertise in virtually all current procedures including canine arthroscopy, ACL repair, fracture repair and total hip replacement just to name a few.
Certainly if one of your two legged family members required orthopedic surgery, you would see an orthopedic specialist. Would you want anything less for your pet?
