Joint Surgery

Many joint diseases can be managed medically, and we carry a large range of different anti-arthritic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs. See medical management of lameness.

Some joint diseases or injuries require surgical intervention.

We offer a complete range of joint surgery from arthroscopic examination and treatment of shoulder and elbow cases, through arthrotomy and complex reconstruction of multi-ligament joint injuries or joint fractures.

A significant proportion of our work involves stifle (knee) lameness associated with cruciate ligament injury.

This is so important this is covered in a separate section. See Cruciate ligament injury.
