Need recommendation for ACL surgeon in IL

Post by tp5056 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 11:39 pm

So my vet determined that my 5yr old EP has a ligament injury and said she will most likely require surgery.

The only problem is that he is not board certified and I really want to make sure to get this done right since this is a serious choice I am making.

Any recommendations on a experienced surgeon in Illinois would be greatly appreciated! (I don't mind travelling around either)

Thanks!

I would join the "orthodogs" group on yahoo. I am sure someone there could answer your question...

I have no experience with this but I know my vet sends most specialty issues to the University of Illinois Vetrinary Teaching Hospital in Urbana. I found this contact on their website: Small animal :: 217.333.5300

There is a vet hospital in Aurora that is great. They have a couple of surgeons on their staff that do great work.

It's not how many breaths you have taken but how many times it has been taken away!

Has anyone noticed common sense isn't very common anymore.

Can you let me know their contact info? Aurora is only 30 minutes away from me.
