What orthopedic conditions do you treat?
Some orthopedic conditions are caused by risk factors like age, weight and breed, including arthritis. Others, like hip dysplasia and other conditions related to skeletal structure are linked to genetics. Fractures and torn ligaments are also common, caused by injuries or wear and tear. These conditions could need short term or long term treatment, depending on the severity of the condition.
