Orthopedic conditions are one of the most common causes of lameness and poor performance in horses. Many of these conditions are the result of injury or trauma, while others are caused by genetics, diet, development or simply the result of normal usage over time.  The surgeons at the New Jersey Equine Clinic employ sophisticated imaging and treatment modalities to manage orthopedic conditions of our patients.  A wide range of orthopedic disorders are routinely treated at the New Jersey Equine Clinic, including wounds, flexural and angular limb deformities, osteochondrosis or osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), fractures, infections, tendon and ligament injuries, and hoof disorders.
