External Skeletal Fixation

dog broken leg surgeryHaving a pet with a broken leg can be stressful! We are here to help. We offer multiple options for fracture repair and are proficient in repairing many types of complicated fractures. One of these advanced options is ESF (external skeletal fixation).

External skeletal fixation is a surgical treatment for complicated fractures.

External skeletal fixation works by stabilizing bone and soft tissues at a distance from the operative or injury to allow a fracture to heal. External fixation is accomplished by placing pins or screws into the bone on both sides of the fracture. The pins are then secured together outside the skin with clamps and rods. The clamps and rods are known as the "external frame." External skeletal fixation can be used for a variety of different complicated fracture types on all four limbs.

Our doctors have attended extensive continuing education to be proficient in repairing a variety of different fracture types.

Our doctors will assess your patient with XRays and provide a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your pet. Our doctors will explain in detail the healing process of the bone and offer the best treatment plan for optimal bone healing.
