Meet our Head of Surgery Strategy

A New York City native, Dr. Philippa Pavia earned her undergraduate degree at Yale University and attended the University of Pennsylvania for veterinary school. She was happy to come back home to NYC to obtain advanced training, completing a rotating internship followed by a 3-year surgical residency at the Animal Medical Center. She was subsequently board-certified as a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2015.

Before joining Bond Vet, Dr. Pavia accrued years of experience in both clinical and leadership roles — as a specialist surgeon in Manhattan and a Medical Director of a specialty and emergency hospital. Dr. Pavia’s focus is advancing medical quality (with an emphasis on surgical training and outcomes), and she is passionate about making veterinary medicine a sustainable long-term career for vets, nurses, and all members of the hospital team.

ACL Repair

ACL stands for “anterior cruciate ligament,” although in dogs and cats it’s more commonly referred to as the CCL, or “cranial cruciate ligament.”

It’s a small ligament located inside the knee joint, and it plays an important part in keeping the joint stable, in an appropriate position, and functioning well.

Since dogs have a slope inside their knees, their ACL bears more weight than human ACLs do — making them more prone to tears.

ACL tears are fairly common in dogs (our surgical director Dr. Amy Kantor has performed over 2,000 repairs!).

The ligament can tear from: normal wear over time, injury, or conditions that destabilize the knee joint (such as a luxating patella). Also, it’s important to note that pets who tear the ACL of one hindlimb are at risk of tearing the ACL in their other hindlimb later in life.

ACL tears result in painful inflammation and swelling and, if not treated, can lead to irreversible bone and cartilage damage and arthritis in the knee.
