Doctors at the Newton Veterinary Hospital are trained to handle a wide variety of surgical cases using traditional, electrocautery, and laser surgery techniques.
Surgeries such as Cesarean sections, fracture repairs, cruciate repairs (knee surgery) tumor removals, foreign body removals and cystotomies are all performed at our facility. Elective procedures such as spays and neuters are also done on a regular basis.
We’re thrilled to say that, with the recent addition of laser surgery to our growing practice, we can now offer our clients a choice of surgery techniques.
Laser surgery is recognized in human and veterinary medicine for its benefits to both patient and surgeon:
- Reduced Pain. The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser beam seals nerve endings as it cuts through tissue, reducing the amount of pain the pet feels during and after surgery.
- Reduced Bleeding. The CO2 laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it cuts reducing bleeding.
- Reduced Swelling. There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical region, eliminating the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods.
- Reduced Infection. Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively eliminating microorganisms.
- Quicker Recovery. As a result of all of the above, laser surgery provides a quicker recovery for your pet.
If a case requires a specialist such as an orthopedic surgeon, our doctors all work hand in hand with board-certified specialists that can be consulted concerning your pet’s needs.
