Orthopedic Services

For your pet’s orthopedic needs, El Camino Veterinary Hospital in Sacramento, California works closely with Board Certified Veterinary Surgeons for pets with orthopedic needs. A board certified veterinarian is a veterinarian who has successfully completed a three-year residency program, met specific training and caseload requirements, performed research and have had their research published. This process is supervised by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. They ensure that there is a consistency in training and adherence to high standards of excellence. We utilize these specialists to ensure our patients receive the best care.

Orthopedic surgeries include, cruciate ligament surgeries (TPLOs), femoral head osteotomies (FHOs) and other orthopedic repairs.

At El Camino Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians will oversee the pre-operative and post-operative care for your pet. This is beneficial as we know your pet’s medical history and can adjust care based on their needs. We also have an orthopedic surgery coordinator to oversee that there is a continuity of care. Our goal is to ensure a smooth experience for both you and your pet.
