Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue includes tendons, ligaments, skin, fat, muscles and blood vessels.

The Soft Tissue Surgery service is concerned with the treatment of conditions where surgery of areas other than the bones/joints and nervous system is indicated.

The members of our highly qualified team of Soft Tissue Surgeons routinely perform many types of surgical procedure, including:

  • Abdominal surgery
  • Cardiothoracic surgery
  • Ear, nose and throat surgery
  • Surgical oncology
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Upper airway surgery
  • Urogenital surgery
  • Vascular surgery (arteries and veins)
  • Wound care and reconstruction

Our Specialists also undertake a wide range of reconstructive surgeries and are experts in wound management.

We are constantly seeking to develop minimally invasive surgical techniques, which reduce surgical trauma and decrease or eliminate exposure to general anaesthesia.

We are one of a very few veterinary referral centres in Europe to offer interventional radiology, which involves the replacement of traditional surgical approaches with advanced imaging techniques. This sophisticated procedure allows instruments to be passed via blood vessels and airways to areas of the body which, previously, would have been inaccessible without invasive surgery.
