Haven Lake Animal Hospital

Medicine in Motion for Your Pet

Pet Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery is one of the fastest growing fields in veterinary medicine. The opportunities it provides your pet to live a pain-free and active life are tremendous.

At Haven Lake Animal Hospital, we have a passion for veterinary orthopedic surgery. When surgical intervention is combined with our comprehensive rehabilitation services, the odds for your pet’s successful recovery are staggering. Our veterinary staff is fully trained in the art of orthopedic surgery, and our doctors take a keen interest in following its scientific advancements.


Many orthopedic conditions your pet may suffer from can cause debilitating pain and eventually lead to meniscal tears and more severe conditions such as osteoarthritis. However, this need not be the case for your beloved pet. Haven Lake Animal Hospital is fully equipped to offer a full range of orthopedic surgery options, including procedures such as:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament repair
  • Luxating patella (knee cap) repair
  • External fixature fracture repair
  • Fracture repair through pins and wiring
  • Hip and shoulder surgery related to developmental cartilage damage

It’s OK if you’re unsure about what those terms mean. We will be happy to explain them to you in detail if the need arises, or you can contact us to schedule an exam and consultation if you are concerned your pet may be suffering from the afflictions mentioned above. However, if those conditions sound familiar to you and your pet, then you understand how important it is to seek quality treatment and rehabilitation for the condition.


As with all of our signature services, you can rest assured that your pet will receive the highest quality pre-operative and post-operative care to complement our surgical procedure, including full diagnostic screenings to ensure successful pain management, as well as full instructions for at-home care and follow-up procedures.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our orthopedic surgery services or to schedule an appointment.
