When an orthopedic problem happens, we're here to help! Dr. Jacobo Balairon has over 15 years of orthopedic experience between his practice in Europe and here in the United States. During your visit, an orthopedic examination will be conducted to evaluate your pet's condition and treatment options. Whether your pet is dealing with an acute traumatic event with broken bones, a congenital orthopedic anomaly, or a chronic and more delicate soft tissue injury like a Cruciate Ligament Injury (CrCL), our goal is to provide the best care to help you and your pet resume a normal and fully functional life. Although orthopedic surgeries can be intimidating due to their intricacy and may require more diligent rehabilitation pre and post-surgery, our team is dedicated in walking you through the process each step of the way, as well as being here for any potential questions or concerns, should they arise. Orthopedic surgeries offered at Primary Care Animal Hospital include, but are not limited to, the following – TPLO or Tibial Plataeu Leveling Osteotomy (realigning bone surfaces in the knee joint), Extra-capsular Stabilization (strategically placing a new and synthetic ligament to replace the ruptured ligament) , FHO or hip surgery (removing the hip joint), and Fracture Repairs (Plates, External Fixators, etc).
