We perform soft tissue surgery for a number of medical reasons. This common surgery can be used for most anything non-joint or bone related.
Soft tissue surgery is any surgery non-joint or bone related, and can include ear, nose and throat, cardio-thoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin reconstructive and oncological surgeries. If soft tissue surgery is recommended for your pet, we will do everything possible to keep them safe and comfortable before, during, and after the surgery.
Veterinary soft tissue surgery is recommended for a variety of reasons. The most common soft tissue surgeries for animals are hernia repairs and mass removals. More advanced soft tissue surgeries include cystotomy, abdominal exploratory surgery, and splenectomy.
Soft tissue surgeries are used for a wide array of medical conditions. These include "routine" procedures such as mass removals, trauma, and emergency surgery, wound management, and reconstructive procedures.
Our veterinarians adhere to the highest level of care standards for all surgical procedures. Our highly skilled doctors place the utmost emphasis on pain management to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable throughout the treatment process. We believe that keeping our patients safe and comfortable before, during and after surgery is of the greatest importance and an essential component of your pet's care.
