Orthopaedic & Spinal Surgery Services & Procedures

Pride Veterinary Centre has modern facilities and all the required instrumentation to allow us to perform a wide range of orthopaedic procedures to suit all sizes and shapes of pets. A significant number of our cases consist of lameness investigations and suitable treatment, whether conservative or surgical.

We routinely perform:

  • Arthroscopies
  • Cruciate ligament stabilisation (TPLO, TTA, TCWO)
  • Corrective osteotomies
  • And manage complex fractures and luxations, when needed under intra-operative fluoroscopy.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is one of the treatment modalities we have been increasingly using when dealing with specific musculoskeletal pathologies such as chronic bicipital tenosynovitis or patella tendinopathy. This is a non-invasive treatment option with excellent outcomes!
