Orthopedic Surgery

Shoal Creek Animal Hospital is pleased to offer orthopedic surgeries including repair of some fractures, correction of patella luxation and repair of cranial cruciate injuries.  Dr. Cowan has recently expanded our capabilities by introducing the “Fixin” bone plating system. This locking plate system is considered the gold standard by veterinary professionals for complex fracture repairs and is an excellent addition to the “Interlocking Nail” fracture repair system.

In addition to fracture repair we also offer the “TightRope” system for cranial cruciate ligament disease. This system, along with the traditional lateral suture stabilization technique, allows us to accommodate any size patient with stifle injuries.

Please call our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cowan regarding  orthopedic sugery patients.
