Orthopedic Surgery refers to surgery involving bones and joints. At Sault Ste. Marie Animal Clinic, we are equipped and experienced in treating a broad range of orthopedic conditions including internal and external fixation (using metal pins, screws and wires to stabilize broken bones) and cruciate ligament repair (torn ligaments in the knee). Patients with injuries or conditions requiring very advanced equipment and repair will be referred to an orthopedic surgeon at the Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph or Michigan State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
