Surgery at Nor Cal Vet

From soft tissue surgery to advanced orthopedics, you can trust that our surgery team will provide the best possible outcome for your pet. Our board-certified surgeons operate with the most advanced equipment available, performing procedures from the routine to the complex, and we offer minimally invasive surgery whenever possible to ensure your pet has the quickest, most pain-free route to recovery. What’s more, we do our best to make this easy on you, too. In addition to being there every step of the way to lend support, we offer flexibility in scheduling with late afternoon and evening consults as well as more traditional appointment times, and we’re happy to accommodate drop-offs for rechecks.

We Have It Covered

Whether your pet needs stifle stabilization, oncologic or reconstructive surgery, a neurologic procedure, or a fracture repair, the Nor Cal surgeons are up to the task. Apart from their own demonstrated skill and specialized training, our surgical team has a wealth of resources from which to draw as they collaborate with our entire team of specialists in oncology, cardiology, radiology, internal medicine, and physical rehabilitation to ensure your pet receives the best and most complete care available.

Light Years Ahead

We continue to advance the surgical options for our patients with new technologies including a GE Lightspeed 8 slice CT, a minimally invasive/interventional radiology service with full minimally invasive surgical compliment, as well as a full fluoroscopy suite. We also offer a dedicated, on-site Physical Rehabilitation department run by a CCRT/CVA certified veterinarian using state-of-the-art equipment. So, whether your pet requires a cystotomy, a micro hip replacement, or a lumbosacral dorsal laminectomy, we’re here for both of you from your initial consultation to your final, post-operative recheck.
