Veterinary Orthopedic Surgery in Glen Ellyn
Many pets can suffer from orthopedic issues due to age, injury, congenital defects or obesity. We know how challenging these problems can be for pets, which is why we offer surgical services to address them. Due to how common orthopedic issues can be, we consider these services especially relevant and necessary. Conditions such as arthritis, hip dysplasia and luxating patella are not only painful; they also limit mobility. In addition, the pain and debilitating effects can result in other problems, and possibly even shorten your pet’s life. Dr. Elizabeth Manna has extensive training and experience in orthopedic surgery, and she looks forward to treating your pet and seeing them thrive again. With our top-of-the-line surgical equipment and anesthesia protocols, your pet will receive outstanding care from our team.
Our Orthopedic Surgical Services
Dr. Manna has a special interest in orthopedics and performing life-changing surgeries to help pets live comfortable, healthy lives. Furthermore, her goal with every treatment is to improve mobility, increase activity levels, and return pets to a more normal lifestyle. Surgeries Dr. Manna can perform here in Glen Ellyn include:
- Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) repair
- Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO)
- Patella luxation
- Tibial Tubercle Advancement (TTA)
While certain orthopedic conditions can be corrected without surgery, others require a more intensive approach. Stabilizing the joints and repairing damaged tissue may be necessary steps for helping your pet move around with greater ease.
Finally, during your pet’s recovery, it is important that you follow our recommendations and monitor your pet to ensure that they’re healing properly. They may be disoriented or distressed at their current condition, which is why they’ll need someone at their side as much as possible. If your pet needs additional care following surgery, we would be happy to provide it. Furthermore, we will want to evaluate your pet’s progress and find out from you how they’re adjusting at home.
Choosing orthopedic surgery to treat your pet’s condition is a big step. Before you make a decision, we’ll need to examine your pet and possibly run diagnostics to check for other issues. Do you have any concerns about your pet’s well being due to an orthopedic problem? Give us a call at (630) 469-7400, and we’ll guide you towards making the best decisions for your pet’s care.
