Orthopedic Surgery


Orthopedic surgery is the treatment of the musculoskeletal system (e.g. bones, cartilage, joints, ligaments and tendons). Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota offers a wide variety of orthopedic surgical procedures, as well as conservative (non-surgical) treatments. Some of the conditions VSC treats can be effectively treated with a single procedure while others require life-long therapy. When extended therapy is necessary, we work with your primary veterinarian for a long-term management protocol. The surgeries and treatments listed below are some commonly performed at VSC.
