Laser Surgery

Here at MVH we perform state-of-the-art Carbon Dioxide laser surgery.

Laser surgery is an alternative to the scalpel.The laser produces a high intensity beam of light that cuts and seals the tissue, reducing the bleeding and swelling normally associated with using a scalpel blade. This helps the surgeon more easily visualize the surgery site, thus speeding up the procedure time. This is beneficial for your pet because it means less time under anesthesia.

There are many benefits to using the laser including:

  • Less pain
  • Less swelling
  • Less tissue trauma
  • Decreased chance of infection

Ask your Veterinarian if the laser can be used for your pet’s procedure.

Orthopedic Surgery

An orthopedic injury refers to damage of the skeletal system or associated joints, muscles, and ligaments.

Some examples of orthopedic procedures we perform include:

  • Patellar luxation repair
  • Repair of the cruciate ligament
  • Bone fracture repair
  • Femoral head ostectomy (hip surgery)
  • Amputations

Our surgeon utilizes the latest innovative advancements for these procedures which improve the comfort and outcome for your pet.

Soft Tissue Surgery

We are able to perform a wide variety of soft tissue surgeries here at Marathon Veterinary Hospital. Spays and neuters are the most commonly performed soft tissue surgeries. These are important for population control as well as to prevent many unwanted illnesses and cancers. Surgery can be useful to remove foreign material from the stomach, to remove stones from the bladder, to remove certain types of tumors, or to fix other problems causing disease. In addition to treating certain illnesses, surgery can also be useful to diagnose disease or cancer. We perform these surgeries every weekday in our hospital. All patients are monitored closely by qualified technical staff and using top-of-the-line monitoring equipment.
