Specialty Surgeries

By a Board Certified Surgeon

A boarded surgeon has taken specialty training and concentrates solely on surgical services. This is unlike most general practice veterinarians who perform wellness, urgent care, emergency and some surgical services day to day. Boarded Surgeons are called to perform more difficult procedures that require specialty training and/or a higher surgical skill level.
