Our Orthopedic Surgery Service at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital provides state-of-the-art care for equine patients treating injuries to bones, joints, and their supporting structures.

A Better Life

Each year, we see over 1,000 patients with orthopedic conditions, approximately half of which are new patients. Our Service is led by outstanding clinical surgery faculty, residents in surgical training, and veterinary technicians and we work side by side with the Equine Lameness Service and Diagnostic Imaging Center to ensure that our patients receive the most comprehensive care available. We are dedicated to providing the best medicine and surgical expertise for your horse to ensure they have the best quality of life. Referral appointments can be made with the Orthopedic Surgery Service by contacting the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital Monday through Friday at 979-845-3541.

Your Care Team

Our faculty members are leaders in the field of veterinary orthopedics, and are committed to excellence in clinical service and scientific research. They provide clinical and classroom instruction to veterinary students, interns, and residents preparing for careers in private practice or at other academic institutions. In addition, our faculty members contribute to improving the practice of orthopedic surgery through consultations and continuing education seminars for practicing veterinarians and the authorship of scientific manuscripts and surgical texts.
