Orthopaedic surgery is surgery of the musculoskeletal system and involves bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. 

At ACE we perform orthopaedic surgery for developmental issues such as hip dysplasia, and acquired issues such as a fracture from a trauma incident. These will be either planned or emergency surgeries.

All of our orthopeadic surgeries are performed at international gold standards. Surgeries regularly undertaken at ACE Vet hospital include surgeries for cruciate disease management such as TPLO surgery (Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) and CBLO surgery (Cora based leveling osteotomy)

For more information on TPLO and CBLO surgery, or download a brochure here.
