Orthopedic Surgery

Dr. Bestic has received additional training in repair of two of the most common orthopedic injuries to both dogs and cats (medial patellar luxations and cranial cruciate ligament ruptures). There are different types of surgeries to correct both of these problems and the type of surgery should depend on the grade of the luxation, activity level of the animal, and the size of the animal. Not every surgery works for every dog and our staff can discuss the risks and benefits prior to spending a large amount of money and time to get your pets active and healthy again. Dr. Bestic has also performed femoral head osteotomies and fracture repair with great success.
