Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopaedic and joint surgery is commonly required by cats and dogs, sometimes due to injuries caused by an active Muskoka lifestyle , and sometimes because of congenital diseases affecting bones and joints.

Surgical orthopaedic services at our hospital include:

  • Fracture repair
  • Anterior cruciate ligament repair (ACL) both TTA and Extra capsular
  • Medial and Lateral Patellar Luxation repair
  • Referral to outside surgeons is available for more complicated or difficult fracture repair.

Dr. Wurdell recently completed extensive training in Tibial Tuberosity Advancement.  This procedure surgically repairs cranial cruciate ligament injuries in your dog’s knee and is quickly becoming the gold standard treatment for this injury. No need to travel to specialized care- we are pleased to now offer this procedure right here in Muskoka !
