With the exception of emergencies, we perform surgeries by appointment. We have a dedicated surgical suite where we perform sterile surgical procedures. Our doctors and staff take all safety precautions for the health and safety of your pet. All of our patients are placed on water-circulating heating pads and a member of our surgical team monitors their vital signs continuously during each procedure with multi-parameter monitors. Grace Animal Hospital is one of only a few hospitals in South Carolina that performs anesthesia with a ventilator allowing us to breathe for your pet. At discharge, a member of our staff will go over any post-op care instructions and answer any questions you have. We perform preanesthetic
blood work on each of our surgical patients before procedures to ensure we
provide the smoothest and safest protocol for each individual patient Our veterinarians personally conduct a pre-anesthetic physical exam to finalize surgical plans.


We are proud to offer advanced orthopedic surgical procedures within a general veterinary practice for injuries, degenerative joint conditions, early age hip intervention, as well as other various issues that may be present in your animal’s musculoskeletal system. The most common cause of a 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, which is called a TPLO (short for tibial plateau leveling osteotomy). There are other types of surgical interventions for a small percentage of dogs with this condition, and 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.

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.
