Board-certified surgeons are trained in all aspects of surgery, including soft tissue (abdominal, thoracic, oncologic, reconstructive), orthopedic and neurologic procedures. Our surgeons have on-site access to the most advanced diagnostic equipment, including digital radiography, CT scanning, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). CARE surgeons are part of a team of doctors committed to providing the best possible care for your pet. The surgery department works collaboratively with our internists, oncologists and other specialists as needed to ensure the best comprehensive medical and surgical care for your pet.
After an initial evaluation, your CARE surgeon recommends diagnostics and reviews available treatment options. Whenever possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques, including arthroscopy (joints), laparoscopy (abdomen) and thoracoscopy (chest). These techniques are not only less invasive, but result in less post-operative pain and often shorter hospitalization times. Along with the most advanced surgical care, our surgeons maintain a strong focus on pain management to ensure your pet’s comfort and reduce stress levels during treatment.
In cases where surgery is not recommended, surgeons assist in managing acute and chronic issues in conjunction with your family veterinarian.
