At VetMed in Sydney, we believe that your pet should be taken care of as if they were family. That’s why we are dedicated to providing a range of cross-disciplinary specialties that give your pet the best possible care. We offer a pet surgery at our locations in Sydney—Randwick, Northbridge and Lindfield—that can handle the least invasive to the most complicated procedures.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive procedures are perfect for pets because they promote rapid diagnosis, repair, healing and they are not as uncomfortable for the pet. The procedures are performed through tiny incisions instead of just one large opening. Some of the techniques include:
- Arthroscopy: Used to visualise, diagnose and treat joint disease
- Laparoscopy: Used to view internal organs and treat certain abdominal conditions.
Our veterinary surgeons treat congenital and acquired bone, joint and spine injuries. Some conditions that we treat are:
- Fracture of joint (shoulder, elbow, knee)
- Dislocated kneecap
- Cranial cruciate ligament rupture
- Sprains, strains or trauma to soft tissue
