The surgeon’s mantra is “a chance to cut is the chance to cure” – this is true in many cases! Elective procedures are routinely performed M-F in a rotational surgical schedule. Emergencies are handled as needed – Soft tissue procedures, orthopedic repairs, and ophthalmologic techniques are commonly scheduled in a wide variety of species. Sterile technique in our surgical suite, continual anesthetic monitoring and recovery by technicians, the use of isoflurane anesthetic, pulse oxymetry, body temperature control and specific instructions regarding aftercare provides additional support to ensure a satisfactory outcome for all involved.
