Orthopaedic Surgery

At MASH, we understand the importance of maintaining your pet’s quality of life, mobility, and overall well-being. Our goal is to deliver personalised and comprehensive orthopaedic care, utilising advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the best possible outcomes for your beloved companions.

Diagnostic Imaging: 

Our hospital is equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging technology, including digital radiography, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and computed tomography (CT) scans. These tools allow us to obtain precise images of your pet’s bones, joints, and soft tissues, both before and during surgery, enabling accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Minimally Invasive Surgery: 

MASH utilizes minimally invasive techniques whenever suitable to minimize surgical trauma, reduce pain, and promote faster recovery. These procedures, including arthroscopy and fluoroscopy guided fracture repair, offer smaller incisions, less tissue disruption, and decreased post-operative complications.

Compassionate and Supportive Environment: 

We understand that your pet’s well-being is of utmost importance to you. Our team is committed to providing a compassionate and supportive environment, addressing any concerns or questions you may have throughout the process.

We specialize in a wide range of orthopaedic surgical procedures, including but not limited to:

  • Joint Surgery: Our team are experts in joint surgeries addressing conditions such as cranial cruciate ligament disease, patella luxation, joint instability, cartilage damage, arthritis and dysplasia, among others.
