Dr. Kate Crumley and Dr. James Murray have done additional training outside of Veterinary School specifically for Orthopedic surgery. Conditions that we commonly treat with surgery here at Heartwood include Cranial Cruciate Ligament repairs, Luxating Patellas, and Bone Fractures. If you have a pet that seems to be hurt in one if their legs or if you are looking for a second opinion for any orthopedic condition, please give us a call!
New to Heartwood this year is the state of the art Arthrex Tightrope Cruciate repair technique. This technique uses a kevlar-like material to stabilize the knee joint. This same material is used in many human sports medicne surgeries and chances are your favorite MLB or NFL player may have an Arthrex implant.
