Case Studies

Forearm Fracture
This small dog suffered a forearm fracture, which Dr. Torok corrected by internal fixation with a bone plate and screws. Post-operatively, this little guy wore a splint for about 8 weeks to support the fixation and then went back to being a bouncy pup!

Kitten Femur Fracture
This kitten slipped behind the sofa very shortly after being adopted from PAWS Chicago and broke her femur.  A pin was placed to stabilize the fracture and following this X-ray to confirm proper placement, the pin was cut to the appropriate length, and the kitty was bandaged for about 4 weeks.
