What is a Veterinary Surgeon?

A veterinary surgeon is a veterinarian that has gone through specialized training and extra years of internships/residency to specialize in surgical procedures. A veterinary surgeon has specialization in advanced surgical procedures like TPLOs, fracture repairs, arthroscopy, congenital deformities, and soft tissue procedures. Our surgeons have access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment as well as a specially trained staff.

Why Do You Need a Pet Surgeon?

A surgeon will be able to treat complicated cases and will be able to provide an owner with state-of-the-art options. A veterinary surgeon works closely with your family veterinarian in providing the best care for your pet. Your family veterinarian will refer to a veterinary surgeon when they feel it is appropriate. A pet may also need a surgeon after coming in through an emergency center when a surgical procedure is indicated, and our board-certified surgeons are available 24/7.
