Surgery & Anesthesia
Surgery is generally divided into soft tissue surgeries and orthopedic surgeries. Orthopedic surgeries focus on bones, tendons, and joints (e.g. fracture repair), while soft tissue surgeries encompass abdomen, thorax and skin (e.g. wound repair).
The most common surgeries performed in a veterinary hospital are elective spays and neuters, and other soft tissue surgeries such a mass removals. In addition to elective surgical procedures, we also have vast experience with an array of emergency surgeries, including abdominal exploratory surgery, foreign body removal, and repair of traumatic injuries.
