The orthopedic surgery service is led by Dr Ragetly who is also a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. The service focuses on all types of orthopedic trauma (fractures, luxations) and neurologic trauma (fractures and prolapsed intervertebral discs). In addition to surgery, the service also performs diagnostic evaluations of surgical candidates. One of the more common orthopedic problems in small animals is a rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament in the knee, which is the numberone cause of hind-limb lameness in the dog. Other conditions include hip dysplasia or elbow diseases. Arthroscopy is usually recommended for most joint diseases. Additional procedures are offered for a variety of problems, including correction of angular limb deformities, congenital defects (elbow dysplasia, patellar luxation) and any number of other general orthopedic issues.
