Surgery

Veterinary Specialists Auckland Surgical is now a team of five surgeons operating from two specialist hospitals - Sylvia Park and Mt Albert, both in Auckland. A complete surgical service is offered in all areas at both hospitals: orthopaedic, neurologic, oncologic and soft tissue. Our surgery team works closely with referring veterinarians to diagnose and treat complex surgical conditions in dogs and cats.  We like to think of ourselves as an extension of the primary veterinarians practice.  Our case load is broad and challenging in many cases.

One of the many benefits of size is that our team can now also offer more focused expertise in certain areas so that optimal care is provided. For example:

  • Brain surgery – Dr Richard Jerram and Dr Kyle Clark plus the Veterinary Specialists Imaging team.
  • Hip replacement – Dr Alex Walker, Dr Alastair Coomer and Dr Damian Chase
  • Minimally invasive surgery – Thoracoscopy and laparoscopy – Dr Kyle Clark
  • Arthroscopy – Dr Damian Chase
  • Urinary tract surgery and hydraulic sphincter placement – Dr Alastair Coomer
  • Reconstructive surgery – Dr Alex Walker

New and innovative surgical procedures are constantly being introduced to our treatment protocols as meaningful objective data becomes available through research and peer reviewed literature.  Our objective is to achieve optimal outcomes for our patients.
