Orthopaedic surgery in small animals is now a highly advanced and successful surgery that allows most conditions to be treated with success. Here at NOAH, we’re pioneers for orthopaedic veterinary surgery, offering the first orthopaedic surgeries for patients in Ireland in the 1990s.
Dr William McCartney of NOAH (is an independent veterinary surgeon who is widely regarded as one of the pioneers in small animal orthopaedic surgery since 1996. Our mottos stands as “There are very few fractures that cannot be treated”, meaning all fractures large and small are given contemplation in our specialist orthopaedic veterinary clinic.
As well as standard fracture repairs, NOAH offers specialist spinal surgery, joint replacements, cruciate repairs, and limb deformity treatment for most dogs, cats, and other small animals.
NOAH offers a range of standard and specialist orthopaedic veterinary surgery services, including:
Soft Tissue Surgeries
Limb deformity is usually treated by osteotomy and an external frame such as an Ilizarov or ring fixator, which may need regular adjustment. The treatment time can be quite long, but it is possible to change the shape of a limb to a more normal cosmetic and functional position.
Such deformities are Carpal/tarsal valgus, carpal/tarsal varus, shortened limbs, torsion of front or hind feet, medial or lateral bowing of long bones, and spinal deformity.
