Orthopedics

The orthopedic department at Animal Clinic Northview is directed by Dr. David Knox. Although he is a general practitioner, orthopedic surgery has been Dr. Knox’s field of special interest since graduating from veterinary college in 1984.

Available orthopedic services include:
• Lameness evaluation
• Fracture repair
• Cranial cruciate ligament surgery
• Spinal surgery
• Arthroscopic surgery for a variety of joint abnormalities

We also diagnose and treat non-surgical conditions, including growth abnormalities and degenerative joint disease (arthritis). In some cases, treatment may include weight management, exercise regimens, and physical therapy. Our under water treadmill has been the back bone of our physical therapy program since moving to our current facility.

If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Knox or one of his staff members.
