Luxating patella surgery - Tierspital or regular vet?

Our little one has had a luxating patella on one knee, but as it was grade 1, the vet told us to pick him up with stairs and not let him jump etc.

Three years have passed and since Friday, he started slightly limping. I’ll monitor if this goes on until Tuesday and if so, will take him to the vet. My question is, for luxating patella, can the regular vet do this surgery or should we go straight to Tierspital? Will our vet be offended if we had it done at Tierspital?

I’ve only taken my previous dog to Tierspital for emergency. My boyfriend vaguely remembers taking one of his old dogs to Tierspital for this surgery but he’s not sure as it was a long time ago. Does your dog need to stay at the vet post surgery or can you take him home on the same day? How long does the cast stay on?

Can anyone pls share their experiences? Thank you!
