Our surgical team is composed of board-certified specialists who provide experience and expertise in the full range of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. Our goal is to provide “State of the Art” care from the moment each patient walks in the door, to the time they are discharged. To that end, our surgeons are involved in the management of each case from the diagnostic stages, through surgery itself, and throughout the postoperative period. The surgeons are assisted by a highly trained, experienced, competent, and compassionate support staff that consists of licensed veterinary technicians, graduate veterinary interns (new graduates in training), senior veterinary students on external rotations, and attentive barn staff and veterinary assistants. In addition, most of the veterinarians on our staff play integral roles in the management of our surgical patients, from assisting with emergency evaluations, to assuming the roles of surgical assistant and anesthetist.
“State of the Art” care depends not only on the skill and experience of the surgeons and support staff, but also on the quality of the facility and the equipment therein. Our surgical facility was designed with your horse’s comfort and safety in mind. Our custom-designed anesthesia induction and recovery stalls have non-slip rubber flooring, deeply padded walls, and the capability to provided assisted recovery from anesthesia using head and tail ropes in multiple configurations. The operating room is spacious and well lighted. It is also equipped with top-of-the-line surgical instrumentation and equipment.
