Question:

: HI!
: I have a 1 1/2 yr old spayed female "Ella" who is having bialteral luxated patella surgery today. She is a grade 4 on the left and 2 on the right. She may/will need trochlear groove replacement? in possibly both knees as well as having part of her bone shave off I believe. The orthopedic surgeon said it is best to do both legs at the same time in order for her to have to use both legs post surgery to keep atrophy at a minimum. I read in the archives that Heather had this surgery done on one of her pups. Has anyone had bilateral surgery done and how was the outcome?


Response:

Dear Karen,

Hope the surgery went well and Ella is on the road to recovery; please give your little one a hug and kiss from all of us.

Best,
Leslie
