A full range of routine and referral surgeries.
All our veterinarians are experienced in routine surgical procedures such as desexing, tumour removal, lacerations, caesareans and abdominal surgery. In addition to routine surgery Jonathon Nott and Simon Whitaker have provided Newcastle and the Hunter with general and referral surgical services for over 25 years. Both have developed the surgical experience that only comes from a large case load and extensive study. Procedures performed regularly include:
- Orthopaedic – (TPLO) – a Tibial plateau leveling osetotomy performed for cruciate repairs, patella luxation repair, complex limb fracture repairs, pelvic fractures, OCD removal and other joint arthrotomies, corrective osteotomies for angular limb deformities, arthrodesis, mandibulectomies and maxillectomies.
