Orthopedic Services

Dr. Tanner Miller has received specialized training in specific orthopedic procedures. He has experience performing cruciate surgeries (both Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomies (TPLO’s) and Extracapsular Suture repairs), fracture repairs, luxating patella surgeries, and femoral head and neck ostectomies (FHO’s).

Wildcat Vet Clinic also performs most surgeries with a CO2 laser scalpel that minimizes bleeding, bruising, and pain. This allows us to resect gingival hyperplasia and oral masses with minimal bleeding, stenotic nares surgery, among other procedures.

We have other doctors (Dr. Elli Unruh and Dr. Holly Harris) that perform Extracapsular suture repairs, FHO’s, mpl’s at Paola Vet Clinic.

(Note: Most of our doctors can do an FHO. Dr. Tanner would be the only one doing a TPLO and most fracture repairs.)

If you have any questions about your pet’s case, we recommend calling the clinic to schedule a surgical consultation and/or to get them scheduled for surgery.

Comprehensive Orthopedic Services: Restoring Mobility and Health

When it comes to ensuring the well-being of your furry companion, orthopedic services play a crucial role. Orthopedic issues can affect a pet’s mobility and overall quality of life. In this article, we will explore various orthopedic services designed to address common ailments in pets. From cruciate surgeries to fracture repairs, luxating patella surgeries, and femoral head and neck ostectomies, our dedicated team of veterinary experts is here to provide top-notch care for your beloved pets.

Cruciate Surgeries: Restoring Stability

Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)

One of the most common orthopedic issues in pets is a torn cruciate ligament, which can result in pain and limited mobility. The TPLO procedure is a specialized surgical technique designed to stabilize the knee joint. By reshaping the tibia, our skilled veterinarians ensure that your pet’s knee functions smoothly, alleviating discomfort and promoting a quicker recovery.

Extracapsular Suture Repairs

Extracapsular suture repairs are another effective method for addressing cruciate ligament injuries. This procedure involves using strong sutures to stabilize the joint. Our experienced team ensures that your pet receives the best possible care, enabling them to regain their active lifestyle.

Fracture Repairs: Healing with Precision

Accidents happen, and fractures are a common consequence. Our orthopedic services include expert fracture repairs to mend broken bones and get your pet back on their feet. We understand the urgency of such situations and offer immediate care to alleviate pain and promote the healing process. Our team of specialists uses advanced techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet’s recovery.

Luxating Patella Surgeries: Ensuring Joint Health

Luxating patella, a condition where the kneecap dislocates, can be painful and restrict your pet’s movements. Our orthopedic specialists are well-versed in addressing this issue. With surgical precision, we can realign the patella, providing your pet with relief and improved joint function.

Femoral Head and Neck Ostectomies (FHO): Restoring Mobility

When hip joint issues arise, such as hip dysplasia, femoral head and neck ostectomies (FHO) can be a viable solution. This procedure involves removing the femoral head to eliminate pain and discomfort associated with hip problems. Our experienced veterinarians perform FHO surgeries with utmost care, helping your pet regain their mobility and live a more fulfilling life.
