Fracture Fixation - Fixing Fractured Bones in Pets - Lake Geneva WI

Fracture Fixation

Fractured bones happen frequently in veterinary medicine. Dr. Scot Hodkiewicz uses a variety of methods to repair these. Plates, screws, pins and wire are commonly used. Dr. Scot also uses the newest “Locking Plates” recently introduced in veterinary medicine. These plates “lock” together with the screws to ensure a stronger, more stable fixation. This is vital in dogs that are large or likely will not be able to be confined for the eight to twelve weeks it takes for bones to heal.

Cost

Most fractures can be fixed for between $1200 and $2500 depending entirely on the complexity of the injury and the method used for repair. Dr. Scot can often review x-rays taken elsewhere and give a more detailed quote.
