Pet Orthopedic Surgery

Pet Surgery
We are proud to offer advanced orthopedic surgical procedures within our general veterinary practice for injuries, degenerative joint conditions, early-age hip intervention, as well as other issues that may be present in your animal’s musculoskeletal system. The most common cause of hind limb lameness in dogs is a torn cranial cruciate ligament (the dog’s equivalent of the human ACL), and we are proud to be able to provide the best surgical intervention for this condition, called a TPLO (short for tibial plateau leveling osteotomy). There are other surgical interventions for a small percentage of dogs with this condition that can be discussed at a consultation at Grace Animal Hospital.

We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging to enhance our capabilities for orthopedic surgery, ensuring that your pet has access to the highest standard of veterinary medicine. Dr. Ryan Dover, a graduate of the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, specializes in small-animal medicine and orthopedic surgery. With experience in veterinary technology and academic excellence, he has published research in various veterinary journals and is an active member of professional associations. Our surgical team is highly trained and experienced in orthopedic procedures, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands. We promise to communicate with you throughout the process and make your pet’s surgery as stress-free as possible.
