From removing socks from your pet's stomach to repairing broken bones or removing serious malignant tumors, our veterinarians perform many advanced surgical procedures within the hospital and will find a specialist to help your pet when it is necessary. We continually invest in equipment for our surgical room and we employ skilled Licensed Technicians to monitor our patients and assist with procedures. You may be surprised at the range of procedures we perform, some of which are listed at the bottom of this page.
|What is Radiosurgery? We perform
radiosurgery by using radio waves instead of a scalpel blade
to make our incisions.
How does Radiosurgery work? A radiofrequency microfiber tip becomes energized by the radio waves but does not become hot, providing focused cutting and coagulation.
What are the benefits to your pet?
1. Decreased post-operative pain
2. Decreased post-operative swelling
3. Less blood loss
4. Reduced risk of infection

|Cryosurgery allows us to remove benign skin tumors up to
the size of a pencil eraser. Most patients do not need
general anesthesia and a hospital stay is not required. Most
tumors are removed with a single 20-second freeze.
1. A local anesthetic is used to prevent pain
2. A cryogen is sprayed onto the tumor; this freezes and destroys the tumor cells.
3. The tumors appearance will change and it will eventually fall off (usually in 2 weeks)
4. Small growths can be removed without general anesthesia using a cryogenic liquid to freeze the unwanted growths.
