The Skill and Competence of Advanced Surgical Training
No one ever hopes their pet will require surgery, but a situation may arise that requires surgical intervention. The outcome of veterinary surgery is impacted by knowledge, experience, and commitment of the surgical team. Our board-certified surgeon is skilled in many conditions such as:
- Orthopedic including cranial cruciate ligament rupture, elbow/hip dysplasia, fractures, and joint injuries
- Soft tissue including ear/nose/throat, urogenital, gastrointestinal, wound management/reconstruction, liver/gallbladder, cardiothoracic, endocrine, and hernia/rupture
- Neurologic including spinal conditions such as ruptured discs, fractures, dislocations, neoplasia, deformities, instabilities, and cysts
- Oncologic (cancer) including mast cell tumours, soft tissue sarcomas, oral tumours, thoracic tumours (lung, chest), and abdomen tumors (liver, spleen, kidney, intestine)
- Minimally-invasive options such as laparoscopy, arthroscopy, and fracture repair
During a consultation for veterinary surgery, diagnosis and treatment options are discussed and recommended based on what is best for the patient and their family.
Please see our Terms and Conditions and Client Preparation Guide for further information. Additional resources for veterinary surgery can be found in our Surgical Procedures - What to Know & Expect and our Surgery FAQ's.
Personalized Patient Care
