Project Description

Scarlett is a beautiful 3 year old Australian Shepherd, she presented to Southpaws suffering from bilateral elbow dysplasia. Our surgical team performed a bilateral subtotal coronoidectomy (removal of bone fragment from the elbows) and a right biceps ulnar release procedure (BURP). The BURP process releases part of the biceps muscle from the bone, removing the potential for this connection to interfere with the articulation of the elbow. Scarlett went home very happily with mum today.
