What Is A Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon?

A board certified veterinary surgeon is a licensed veterinarian who has obtained intensive, additional surgical training in order to be accepted and accredited by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS).

While your primary care veterinarian can diagnose and treat many health problems, certain diseases and conditions require the care of a doctor who has had this specialized, intensive surgical training in order to provide the very best outcome for your pet.

The Surgery service here at GVSS offers a range of advanced surgical procedures including:

  • Orthopedic surgery
    • Arthroscopy
    • Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO)
    • Angular limb deformity correction
    • Fracture repair
    • Femoral head excision
    • Patellar luxation stabilization
    • Arthrodesis
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Oncologic (cancer) surgery
  • Skin reconstructive surgery
  • Wound care

More advanced procedures and procedures involving minimally invasive imaging (fluoroscopy, CT and MRI) can be arranged at our sister clinic in Mississauga as needed.
