Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure for the assessment and treatment of joint disease. This allows us to provide an accurate diagnosis and prognosis of the joint condition while reducing patient discomfort and healing time. At Skylos, we employ the most current technology available in arthroscopy, the Arthrex Synergy System. Its use for visualizing joint surfaces is the standard of care at our hospital, not an add-on or option.

Hi, Peter

Just wanted to catch you up with Dylan’s progress following his second total hip replacement. It’s as though he has springs for legs! And he is one happy boy. He’s still sitting and walking and running correctly no bunny hopping.

I can’t thank you enough for your skill with dogs and people such a rare and wonderful combination.

Hope all is well with you and all at Skylos. I recommend you all over the place!

Take good care,
Lynn & Dylan

Cranial Cruciate Ligament Injury

Cranial cruciate ligament disease is the most frequently treated condition at our hospital. We offer a variety of treatment options, and tailor our treatment recommendations to the individual needs of each patient, based on breed, age, temperament, fitness level, financial considerations, and patient/family lifestyle. While the injury is often considered commonplace due to its prevalence, there is nothing ordinary about our stifle surgeries.

Testimonial

We had an exceptional experience with everyone at Skylos. Our lab needed a TPLO, and Dr. Lotsikas was absolutely incredible. From the professional front desk staff, who are always smiling, to Holly, the client services contact that spent 30 minutes on the phone answering my questions, we couldn’t have asked for more. They are incredibly accessible via email and return calls promptly. Our pup is healing exceptionally well, and will return to full lab-mode in a few short weeks thanks to the support and expertise of the folks at Skylos.

Fractures

From the simple to the complex, the Skylos team has the experience and the expertise to get our patients back to full function following a traumatic injury. We always try to employee the least invasive treatment option, whether that is casting or splinting, minimally invasive pin placement, external skeletal fixation, or internal fixation with a plate. Only the highest quality implants made by DePuySynthes, Arthrex Vet Systems, or Imex are utilized.

Total Joint Replacement and Joint Resurfacing

Total joint replacement and joint resurfacing can restore comfort and function in patients severely debilitated by the pain caused by osteoarthritis. Skylos specializes in total hip replacements and unicompartmental elbow resurfacing (CUE procedure). We can also treat focal cartilage defects caused by conditions like osteochondritis dessicans either with cartilage transplanted from the patient (OATS) or by replaceing damaged areas with a synthetic cartilage surface (SynACART). These procedures can restore balance back into your companion’s life.
