Soft Tissue Surgery

The Soft Tissue referral service at SCVS is provided by Tony Ryan, Juan M. Marti, Karen Harris (European Specialists in Small Animal Surgery) and Andy Craig, who is working towards his specialism under their close supervision. Meet the team.

 

Tony, Juan, Karen and Andy accept a wide variety of general surgery cases referred by general practitioners, in addition to working closely with the Cardiology, Dermatology, Diagnostic Imaging, Neurology and Internal medicine services within the practice. Our three state-of-the-art operating theatres and diagnostic equipment, including digital radiography, endoscopy, fluoroscopy, in-house CT scanner and MRI scanners are available to ensure comprehensive investigation of all conditions.

 

The Soft Tissue Surgery Service is supported by a team of highly motivated interns and nurses providing 24-hour care for the hospitalised patients. Our surgeons are also available for telephone consultations with veterinary surgeons who may want to discuss a referral or need advice for cases that cannot be referred.
