Orthopedic Surgery

orthopedic surgery

Orthopedic surgery is regularly performed at the hospital.  The most common orthopedic procedure performed is arthroscopy where two small incisions are made into the joint and using a scope (arthroscope) to view the interior of the joint, bone fragments can be removed.  Repair of fractured bones is also performed at the hospital. 

We have at our disposal a full array of orthopedic implants suitable for just about any fracture that the horse may encounter in a dedicated orthopedic surgery suite.  With the different support systems (dynamic sling support), lay up programs and rehabilitation, recovery rates have significantly improved over the last several years.
