Orthopaedic and Soft Tissue Surgery

Orthopaedic Surgeries

Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few.

Our orthopaedic surgeons: Dr. Peter Mackenzie-Wood and Dr. Gwilym Hunt have a high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures that your pet may require. These may include:

  • Cranial cruciate ligament repair
  • Fracture (broken bone) repair
  • Amputations for severe injuries or bone cancer cases
  • Luxating Patellas

Here at Vets @ Acacia Gardens your pets comfort is our priority, in our orthopaedic procedures and major operations, our patients recieve a pain pack which includes a local into the joint, a morphine drip post operatively, a slow releasing opiod patch over the following 3 days and anti-inflammatories to keep them as happy as possible.

Complicated orthopaedic cases, such as spinal surgery, will need to be referred to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.

Soft-Tissue Surgeries

Soft-Tissue Surgery encompasses any surgery relating to the skin. It includes procedures such as lump removals and reconstructions. Our team of skilled veterinarians have tackled lumps that have come in a range of sizes, from benign tiny warts to large malignant tumors.

Some of these lumps include:

  • Lipoma - A benign fat filled lump that can grow large and impact on a dogs movement
  • Melanoma - A malignant skin cancer thats seen in people
  • Mast Cell Tumor - A skin cancer that ranges from low to highly malignant and invasive 
  • Soft-Tissue Sarcoma - A malignant fast growing tumor that is locally invasive

Here at Vets @ Acacia Gardens your pets comfort is our priority, your pet will receive pain relief before and after the procedure as well as 3 days of anti-inflammatories to keep them as happy as possible

Complicated soft-tissue surgeries, such as those needing extensive reconstruction or follow-up radiation treatment for malignant tumors, will sometimes need to be referred to a specialist surgeon. Our veterinarians will assess each case individually and provide the best advice for you and your pet.
