acl SURGERYACL is a common athletic injury in large breed and athletic dogs. 

A ruptured ACL involved tearing a ligament in the knee joint which prevents forward motion of the tibia. This injury commonly causes pain, lameness and swelling of the knee joint.

Sometimes, an incomplete rupture may be treatment with rest and pain medications. Our veterinarians will do a thorough orthopedic exam and explain all of your pet’s options for the best outcome. When surgery is necessary, our doctors are experienced in performing ACL surgery. ACL surgery intends to reconstruct the torn or damaged ligaments in your pet's knees, allowing him to have freedom of mobility without pain. In cases of full ACL rupture, which typically occur in larger breeds of dogs or obese dogs, the ACL surgery involves a complete replacement of the ligament. This is accomplished with a synthetic substitute that is attached to your pet's knee joint.

Following ACL surgery, we employ proactive and aggressive pain relieving modalities and do everything possible to make the experience comfortable for them. We also emphasize physical therapy as we believe this leads to better outcomes. We guide owners through physical therapy with their dogs giving detailed instructions for low-impact exercises. These are be helpful in improving your dog's mobility and overall health following a surgery.
