It is not suggested for dogs over 20 kgs or 45 lbs. I personally have not heard about it being done in India. But hope someone else can shed some light on this. Try contacting Dr Pawde at IVRI or Dr Kunal at Maxvets.com They would be able to guide properly.

Femoral head ostectomy is an orthopedic surgey where the femur head is cut and then prosthetics are strictured. Probably Dr Aiyappan in Madras Veterinary College will be doing such surgery as he is the famous veterinary orthopedic surgeon.

Let me know if you want any other detail.
