That we provide you, your beloved pet, and your veterinarian.

Upon our arrival at your veterinarian’s hospital, we are intimately involved with your veterinarian and your pet’s healthcare team in the perioperative patient preparation and oversight. It is important that you know that you and your pet’s best interests are foremost in our mind and we would like to share the dedication and commitment we have. A review of this section will help you to understand the overall team commitment we have for the best interests of your pet.

Some clients have asked if we are only an orthopedic surgery practice. Although the types of surgeries we perform are not inclusive in the list, it provides an overview of the versatility of services our surgeons offer from many years of surgical experience. In the private practice setting, most board-certified surgeons are well trained to perform a variety of surgeries. Approximately 65% of the volume of surgeries FRMSS is referred are orthopedic related (bones and joints) with the balance of referrals consisting of various soft tissue (abdomen, thorax, head and neck, urogenital), oncologic, plastic and reconstructive, arthroscopic and laparoscopic, and neurologic surgeries.

AVCS Board Certified Surgeons

A veterinary surgeon has undergone additional training after veterinary school in order to become a specialist. This training consists of a minimum of a 1-year internship followed by a 3-year residency program that meets guidelines established by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS).

During residency, there are specific training and caseload requirements that must be met. In addition to these requirements, applicants must perform research that is published in a scientific journal and then pass a rigorous examination.

Specialists are called a “Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons” or a “board-certified surgeon.” Veterinary surgeons are dedicated to providing the very best in surgical care. They also act as a resource for your primary veterinarian by providing consultations on difficult or unusual cases. With their advanced training, these specialists offer the expertise that ensures the best possible outcome for the animal and animal owner.
