Total Hip Replacement
Dogs can be born with hip dysplasia or can injure the hip joint as a puppy. This leads to arthritis and lameness as the pet ages. For dogs with lameness that is not resolved with medical management or if the goal is to get your pet off of medications, then a total hip replacement can help. Most dogs are more pain-free within the first two weeks after surgery than they were before the procedure.
We use a state of the art implant system from Biomedtrix. We replace the worn-out joint with a cementless titanium prosthesis. The implant system’s use of cementless fixation and a lateral bolt decreases complications and maximizes outcomes. In addition, the system allows joint replacement for almost every size dog, whether they are a great dane or a toy poodle.
