Canine Total Hip Replacement Video

For dogs that suffer from Hip Dysplasia and Osteoarthritis, a total hip replacement surgery may be worth considering.  Total hip replacement surgery replaces a painful and dysfunctional hip joint with an artificial prosthesis in order to provide a pain-free, fully functional joint.  There are only a handful of Veterinary Surgeons in Canada that perform the Zurich Cementless Total Hip Replacement Surgery.  A consultation with Dr. Geoffrey Hutchinson, who has performed many Total Hip Replacement Surgeries, can help you determine if this is a good option for your dog.  This video courtesy of Kyon Veterinary Surgical Products is an excellent visual of the key features of the total hip replacement.   http://vimeo.com/72440352
