Femoral Head Ostectomy

Dr. Phil Zeltzman is a traveling or mobile board-certified veterinary surgeon that performs specialty surgeries at NGAP's non-profit pet clinic, Dutton Road Veterinary Clinic.

He performed his first two surgeries, both Femoral Head Ostectomies, here on December 5, 2012. The purpose of this procedure is to correct a deficiency in the hip. The ball joint is removed to enable a pet to walk and run without a limp.

The first patient was Chanel, an Italian greyhound that was available for adoption through NGAP, and the second was Jada, a rescue dog available for adoption from a local rescue group. Below are some photos from the surgeries. Both of the dogs were up and walking around within an hour.
