While all veterinarians are trained to perform surgery, only a small number of them go on to pursue advanced training and dedicate their career to becoming an expert. Veterinary surgeons have the advantage of performing complex and delicate surgeries day in and day out. It is just this kind of experience you want for your pet when faced with the need for surgery for anything out of the ordinary. Our surgical specialist, Dr. Jeff Stallings, is a member of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, the specialty board that sets the standards for veterinary surgery. Dr. Stallings continues to pursue innovative techniques and stays abreast of the latest advances through conferences and other learning opportunities.

We offer a full range of surgical services including:

  • Neurologic
  • Oncologic
  • Orthopedic      
  • Soft tissue
  • Minimally Invasive:
    • Arthroscopy - Joint surgery
    • Laparoscopy - Abdominal and pelvic surgery
    • Thoracoscopy - Lung/chest surgery

Special emphasis on the safe administration and monitoring of anesthesia is part of our standard of care. Likewise, we develop an individual pain management protocol for each patient. We are committed to ensuring the optimal care and comfort of every patient regardless of how long they stay with us. Please let us know if we can answer any questions you have at the time of your pet’s examination and consultation.
