Dr. Laudonio has a special interest in orthopedic surgery and fracture repair. With over ten years of hands-on experience, and many hours of continuing education focused in this area, Dr. Laudonio is well prepared to care for these difficult cases. In fact, we regularly receive referrals from many local veterinarians when they are faced with challenging injuries that Dr. Laudonio and the staff of Acacia Animal Hospital are uniquely equipped to handle.
Some of the most common procedures performed are stifle (knee) surgeries including ACL, MCL, and luxating patella repair. We offer TPLO, TTA, and extra-capsular surgical options. We also perform all manner of fracture repair with options such as I.M. pins, bone-plating, and external fixation, as well as hip, shoulder, cartilage and elbow surgeries.
Along with surgical intervention, we offer a wide range of medical and pain control approaches, including laser therapy and nutraceutical supplementation, to resolve orthopedic issues and optimize joint and muscle health.
