From the routine to the complex, surgery is an integral part of the services we perform everyday. All of the veterinarians on our team perform the routine surgeries of neutering, spaying and standard tumor excisions. In addition, each veterinarian has a repertoire of more complex surgeries that they have performed many times to solve a specific pet health problem.
- Orthopedic surgery such as fracture repair with IM pinning, or cruciate ligament repair surgery.
- Abdominal surgery: Intestinal surgeries such as gastrotomy, gastric dilatation and volvulus surgery, partial gastrectomy, pyloromyotomy, intestinal resections and anastamosis, and subtotal colectomy. Liver surgery including gall bladder resection, bile duct repair, and liver biopsy. Splenic and pancreatic surgery including resections and biopsy. Bladder surgeries such as stone removals and cancer resections.
- Eye surgery including the repair of entropion, ectropion, and cherry eye; corneal ulceration or perforation surgery, and the excision of cancer from the eye.
- Open chest surgery including the repair of diaphragmatic hernias and lung lobe resections.
- Ear surgery including lateral ear resections, total ear canal ablations (TECA), polyp extractions, and deep flushing of the bulla.
- Skin surgery including the removal of a wide variety of cancers, and the performance of various plasty procedures that are designed to treat medical conditions.
