Total Hip Replacement

Unfortunately, many dogs and cats develop debilitating hip problems during their lifetime. Hip dysplasia or an abnormal hip joint caused by trauma, fracture or arthritis can have a painful impact on every aspect of your pet’s life and deprive him or her of even the simplest of activities. The good news is that it can be successfully treated.

Total Hip Replacement (THR) is a highly effective surgical procedure that replaces a damaged hip joint with a durable, custom fit artificial one. The artificial joint fits and functions as the original joint and lasts a lifetime. With THR, your pet’s pain is alleviated, full mobility is returned and such joyful acts as walking, running, jumping and playing are restored.

Indications for total hip replacement:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Arthritis
  • Legge Perthes Disease
  • Hip Fracture or Dislocation
