Orthopedic Surgeries offered at Blue Sky Veterinary Clinic
Our Bend veterinary surgery team here at Blue Sky Veterinary Clinic offers several advanced surgical techniques for the repair of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture (ACL repair). Tightrope Surgery is one type of Extracapsular or Lateral Suture Stabilization (LSS) technique. In the Tightrope repair, instead of a “traditional” heavy suture material, a branded material called Fiber Tape (made by Arthrex) is utilized. Tightrope surgery is the most common ACL surgery performed here by our Bend veterinary surgery specialists.
Other orthopedic procedures Blue Sky offers are:
- Fracture repairs
- Stabilization of Patellar Luxation
- Bone Biopsy
- Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO)
- Access to traveling Bend area cat and dog surgeon for certain back/neck disc surgeries.
We know you have lots of questions about surgery for your cat or dog. Our Bend veterinary surgery doctors are always happy to discuss them further in person with you, go over pre-surgical estimates, and also discuss a referral to a local Board Certified Orthopedic surgeon if desired.
