The surgery team at Hope Veterinary Specialists has board certified veterinary surgeons that have had extensive surgical training. Our surgery department takes a multidisciplinary approach to your pet’s ailments and works with you, your pet’s veterinarian, and our specialists in others services to provide the highest level of care. We use state-of-the-art equipment and cutting edge technologies to diagnose and treat your pet.
Why should my pet see a board certified surgeon?
The extra training and experience required to achieve specialist certification ensures that each doctor with such certification has the most current information and techniques available. A board certified veterinary surgeon has completed, in addition to undergraduate studies, 4 years in veterinary school, 1 year in an internship, and a minimum of 3 years in a surgical residency training program. But it doesn’t end there. Past their residency programs they have published research, completed credentialing by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS), and have passed a rigorous examination. After completing all these requirements, a surgeon is then considered a Diplomate of the ACVS and is honored with the credentials following their name. This also means Diplomats are held to a higher standard and are expected to provide advanced surgical care and expertise to all the pets referred to them.
