Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy

We are leaders in arthroscopy (key-hole surgery for joints). Professor Innes has been performing arthroscopy since the mid-1990s and he has been involved with developing new techniques and teaching vets on both sides of the Atlantic in the techniques of canine arthroscopy.

We have an excellent set-up with a large range of arthroscopes of different sizes to allow us to examine joints in small and big dogs.

Elbow arthroscopy

Elbow arthroscopy is most commonly used to treat elbow dysplasia (coronoid disease) which affects many breeds of dog. it is the most common cause of forelimb lameness in dogs and we have treated thousands of dogs.

Elbow arthroscopy helps the majority of dogs and it seems that it is most effective when it is used early in the natural history of coronoid disease.

Shoulder arthroscopy

Shoulder arthroscopy is used to treat conditions such as OCD and also to investigate shoulder pain in adult dogs.

We have been instrumental in developing shoulder arthroscopy in dogs including developing new techniques.

Shoulder arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy

Knee arthroscopy is not commonly used in dogs in many centres because it is technically challenging. However, we are very experienced with knee arthroscopy including for meniscectomy.

Knee arthroscopy is useful for diagnosing cruciate ligament injury and meniscal injury as well as treating meniscal injury and OCD.
