  • Other joint surgeries (shoulder, elbow, or hip)
  • Fracture repair (pin, plate, or screws)
  • Neurosurgery (including back or neck)
  • Abdominal and thoracic surgery
  • Skin reconstruction (grafts, flaps)
  • Cancer surgery

Our surgeon is one of few vets in the region who is trained and experienced in performing the latest and most advantageous form of cruciate ligament repair surgery called TPLO or Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy.

WHAT TO EXPECT

When your pet is undergoing routine or expected surgery at Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, pre-surgery blood work will be conducted to assure strong internal health. You will be asked to withhold food after 10 p.m. the night before the surgery and to bring your pet to the hospital the morning of the surgery.

All patients are given a pre-surgery exam in the morning. The surgery will be done during the day and routine surgeries usually go home that evening. More complicated cases may require a longer stay.

In all cases, patients of Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic are closely monitored throughout surgical procedures and recovery. Our attentive and compassionate staff are available to you and will keep you updated every step of the way.
