Baldivis Advanced Surgery Centre
Referral surgery right here in Baldivis! We have an entire surgical Suite dedicated to Advanced Pet Surgery.
Our specially-trained Veterinarians use only the most advanced technologies available to treat your pet in specialties including Oncology, Cardiology, Dentistry, Dermatology, and Surgery.
Cruciate Ligament Repair
The most common referral surgery is a cruciate ligament repair.
A Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy (TPLO) is our preferred technique for repair of a ruptured cranial cruciate ligament (“acl” in humans). The TPLO surgery is the procedure that will give your pet the best prognosis for being able to chase the ball again following a cruciate rupture.
Dr Stephen Rabie from Advanced Surgery is a veteran of more than 1000 Tibial Osteotomy procedures. Dr Rabie will examine your dog, examine the radiographs and recommend the procedure that will give your pet the best outcome. The TPLO surgery is a sophisticated procedure that involves realignment of the tibial plateau and Dr Rabie is precise at cutting the bone so as the end result has a seamless appearance and an environment accelerated healing.
Common Cruciate Surgeries
A successful fracture repair will give your pet an opportunity for accelerated healing and normal athletic function.

With an entire surgical suite dedicated to Advanced Surgery Baldivis Vet offers everything from cruciate ligament surgery to fracture repairs and now, Veterinary Arthroscopy.
Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure that is used to examine and repair the joints of a dog via a surgical camera as little as 1.9 mm!
Joints that are routinely inspected and treated by arthroscopy are the shoulder and elbow, allowing the Veterinarian to have a detailed assessment of the joint in a minimally invasive fashion. It also helps avoid some of the risks and discomfort that can be associated with traditional, more extensive ‘open’ surgery. Recently introducing veterinary arthroscopy to the clinic, Baldivis Vet is now one of a very few centre’s in Perth that can offer the procedure.
Arthroscopy can be used for diagnostic purposes, especially if radiology has not revealed the cause of joint issues. An arthroscopic camera is inserted into the dog through a small portal incision for visualisation. The advantages of Arthroscopic surgery include reduced postoperative pain, accelerated recovery and a high success rate.
We carry out a wide range of surgeries here at our Advanced Surgery Centre. In addition we have excellent digital direct radiographs and Ultrasounds to assist with diagnosis.
