Dr. Jeffrey Kade began performing orthopedic surgeries at the request of local farmers who required assistance with their animals that was economical and accessible. He then transferred these skills to small animals as clients requested it. As time went on, demand became greater. He then sought out advanced, specialized continuing education for the following surgeries:
Cranial Cruciate ligament repair
Femoral head otectomy
Dr. Kader, not having completed a residency in orthopedic surgery, is not a specialist. He is a generalist with advanced orthopedic skills. This allows him to continue practicing small animal medicine in a way he especially values; to interact with clients and their animals, following their development throughout their lifespan while offering orthopedic surgery services if require. These are two aspects of practice he thoroughly enjoys.
Most commonly, Dr. Kader performs the following orthopedic surgeries:
Fracture repairs (pinning, cerclage, eternal fixation and casting)
Cranial Cruciate ligament repair (CrCL) and meniscectomies
Femoral head ostectomies (FHO)
