Vets on Balwyn are able to offer our patients and clients access to a range of sophisticated treatment facilities including a state of the art operating theatre and recovery area. With such sophisticated surgery facilities, we can perform a number of specialised procedures onsite including orthopaedic surgery.

Our Capabilities

Vets on Balwyn are equipped to perform a range of standard orthopaedic procedures onsite including:

  • Cruciate repair (de Angelis surgery)
  • Complex cruciate repair (TPLO)
  • Luxating patella/dislocated knee cap
  • Femoral head and neck excision
  • Fracture repair

If your pet has a particularly complex injury, we may need to refer you to a specialist surgeon at a referral hospital to ensure the best possible surgical outcome. We recommend pet owners who have an animal scheduled in for orthopaedic surgery read our before and after surgery guide to gain a better understanding of the surgery and recovery process.
