An 8-week-old male monk parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus) was presented with hyperextension of the right femorotibial joint. A craniolateral luxation of the right tibiotarsus was observed radiographically. A new surgical repair technique was applied. Intramedullary pins were normograded into the femur and tibiotarsus from the knee. These pins were joined with an acrylic fixator at the exit from the joint with the leg placed in normal anatomic position. This technique and physical therapy resulted in repair of the luxation, normal range of motion, and full return to function of the femorotibial joint.
