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.

Overview

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.

Why would my pet need soft tissue surgery?

Veterinary soft tissue surgery is recommended for a variety of reasons.  The most routine procedures are spays and neuters, though we also commonly perform hernia repairs, cystotomies, and mass removals.  Some of the soft tissue surgeries we perform can be very urgent cases.  Examples of these emergencies may include abdominal exploratory, splenectomy, and perineal urethrostomy surgeries.

When would soft tissue surgery be needed?

Soft tissue surgeries are used for a wide array of medical conditions. These include "routine" procedures such as spays and neuters, as well as mass removals, trauma and emergency surgery, wound management and reconstructive procedures.
