Evaluating and repairing trauma and treating complex diseases requires advanced medical equipment and professional expertise that is typically only found in a specialty hospital like ours. The Surgery Department at VESH is led by Dr. John A. Benson, a board-certified veterinary surgeon specially trained in orthopedic and soft-tissue surgery, and Dr. Emily Pearce, a residency trained surgeon who specializes in minimally-invasive surgery. Depending on your pet's medical concerns, surgery may be the best course of action to keep them healthy. There are a variety of reasons why your pet may need surgery, such as:
Blockages: If your pet swallows something that they shouldn't and develops a blockage, they may require surgery to remove it.
Cancer: While not necessary for all types of cancer, surgery may be beneficial for the removal of some or all your pet's cancerous tumors.
Injuries: If your pet breaks a bone or has a serious wound, they may require surgery for reconstruction or repair.
