DR. GOROSTIZA D.V.M.
Orthopedic surgery is a broad term for surgical repair of the bone or joint. A canine or feline that has broken or fractured a bone due to trauma, or one that is suffering from a congenital condition that affects the joint, may require orthopedic surgery. In order to make surgical corrections to the bone, the dog will be referred to a veterinary specialist with training and the appropriate tools. Orthopedic Surgery is the most effective procedure for correcting an affected bone or joint and returning the patient to a normal state of health. Some orthopedic surgeries include:
Cruciate ligament repair Limb deformity correction
Minimally-invasive fracture surgery Total elbow replacement
Total hip replacement Ligament and tendon reconstruction
Total knee replacement Hip and elbow dysplasia repair
Specialty Soft Tissue Surgery

Ultrasounds are the same technology used to generate sonograms during human pregnancy, uses sound waves transmitted into the body to create an image. Ultrasound is a very non-invasive modality that has no side effects, although occasionally mild sedation is needed to help an anxious patient remain still so a clear image can be captured
