Orthopedics refers to the study and treatment of diseases of the bones and joints and encompasses a huge and complex brand of medicine. Orthopedic surgeons are highly skilled and trained persons with specialized knowledge of these problems and their various treatments. Our surgeons have many, many years of experience and specialized training and thousands of cases behind them in this discipline alone. We are committed to providing the highest possible standard of care and most current treatment options available.

We offer comprehensive case management from start to finish including emergency management of orthopedic trauma such as broken bones and dislocated joints. In cases of chronic or acute lameness, we offer complete orthopedic examination and diagnosis for problems such as hip dysplasia, cruciate ligament rupture, elbow dysplasia, “arthritis”, etc. Our diagnostic suite includes x-ray, ultrasound, and arthroscopy.
