Specialist Veterinary Surgery

Just like us, our pets can develop conditions that need treatment with surgery. Your family veterinarian will refer to a specialist surgeon for complicated cases or those requiring more advanced procedures and care. Our team of specialist surgeons are here to ensure that this often-daunting prospect is as stress-free for you and your pet as possible.

Our experienced specialist surgeons have extensive training in both orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, providing a full range of care for all emergencies, injuries and elective conditions. They work closely with specialists across other departments, including Internal Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, and Anaesthesia, to ensure your pet is receiving excellence in all aspects of their care.

Our team of specialists, vets and dedicated nurses are committed to providing the highest level of care throughout your pet’s stay to achieve the best possible outcome. This starts with an initial assessment of your pet, which will involve thorough discussion of their condition, the treatment options available, the risks and benefits of surgery, the likely outcomes and the costs anticipated to be incurred along the way.

Some of the most common conditions we see include:

  • Lameness assessments
  • Cruciate injuries
  • Fractures
  • Gastrointestinal emergencies
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Tumour biopsies and resections
  • Airway obstructions

Our purpose-built hospital is equipped with the latest equipment, allowing on-site diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of conditions. Our surgeons use specialised equipment and employ the latest techniques to ensure gold standard care for each and every patient. This includes a suite of minimally invasive techniques to provide excellent care with minimal tissue trauma in appropriate cases.

Some of the most common procedures we perform include:

  • Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomies for treatment of cruciate ruptures
  • Luxating patella repairs
  • Fracture repairs
  • Exploratory Laparotomies
  • Laparoscopic procedures
  • Arthroscopic procedures
  • Spinal cord decompressions
  • Oncological resections and reconstructions

By using a multidisciplinary approach and having multiple specialists conferring on each case, we can ensure every facet of your pet’s wellbeing is considered throughout their assessment and treatment. We have a particular focus on patient comfort, utilising a range of anaesthetic and analgesic protocols tailored to each patient to ensure pain and stress are minimised for every pet.

It is our guiding principle to utilise the wide range of expertise and skills we have available across our teams to put every patient’s care and welfare first and foremost. This way you can be assured your pet is receiving the best in veterinary care from initial assessment, diagnosis, through to surgery and rehabilitation. We are available for urgent referrals and in emergency cases requiring timely treatment.
