How Nexus Can Help

At Nexus Veterinary Specialists, our mission is simple. We work with your family veterinarian to ensure your pets receive the best care possible. While your family vet handles your pet’s primary health concerns, our veterinary specialists provide many forms of care to assist in maximizing your pet’s health and quality of life.

Cranial Cruciate Surgery: TPLO, CBLO, Extra Capsular Repair
TPLO and CBLO are surgical procedures used to stabilize the knee with a very high success rate. Extra-capsular repair techniques may be recommended in unique situations.
Corrective Osteotomy for Limb Deformity
An angular limb deformity (a “crooked” leg) can occur for a number of reasons. This can lead to pain and a poor quality of life not to mention negative impacts on the joints. The Nexus board-certified surgeons have extensive experience in correcting angular limb deformities.
Minimally-Invasive Fracture Repair
Broken bones occur for various reasons. The Nexus goal is to utilize minimally invasive surgical techniques to allow bones to heal quickly and allow patients to get back to enjoying life.
Meniscal Surgery
Meniscal tears can be a source of knee pain and can occur at the time of cranial cruciate ligament damage or following knee surgery. The Nexus board-certified surgeons can utilize minimally invasive techniques such as arthroscopy to address meniscal damage.

Arthroscopy: Shoulder, Elbow, Carpus, Hip, Stifle, Tarsus
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive way to evaluate and treat joint problems. It involved placing a small camera into the joint and using superior magnification to diagnose and treat joint problems. The Nexus team has the only mobile service in the region to allow for arthroscopic procedures.
Some dogs and cats will suffer severe trauma to a joint or could develop a severe joint disease that leaves them with pain and discomfort. Arthrodesis is the fusion of a joint. In particular dogs and cats can have a great quality of life following fusion of some joints such as the carpus (wrist) or tarsus (ankle).
Patellar Luxation
This developmental orthopedic condition occurs in dogs and cats that can lead to pain, limb dysfunction, and osteoarthritis. Nexus board-certified surgeons address patella luxation’s using various strategies that improve quality of life and ensure a pain-free return to function.
Joint Replacement: Hip, Elbow, Stifle, Tarsus
A joint replacement in a dog or cat can prevent or end years of suffering from joint pain. The Nexus team will perform hip replacements at select practices or at the Nexus Veterinary Bone & Joint Center, which will be the only veterinary specialty center on the East Coast to offer this service.
