Mango – March POM

Our March Patient of the Month is Mango, the Sun Conure.  Mango came to All West Veterinary Hospital with a broken leg.  The broken bone was Mango’s right tibiotarsal bone.  He was taken to surgery and the fracture was repaired by ESF, which is external skeletal fixation.  This technique allows the fracture site to be stabilized and form a callous while being held in place from distant points.  It is a great way to repair fractures in birds.  Mango’s surgery was performed in January and the fixator was removed in March and we are pleased to report that Mango is doing great!
