It also means that the practice can provide the community it serves with the best possible options for their patients to receive a good diagnosis and prognosis for a healthy life. Their main surgery is equipped with full diagnostic, laboratory, surgical, and hospitalisation facilities. This enables them to have the satisfaction of investigating and treating their patients to a high clinical standard whilst referring to specialists when appropriate. They perform their own cardiac scans, endoscopy (rhinoscopy & otoscopy all the way through to colonoscopy), laparoscopy (90%+ of spays are “keyhole”), fracture repair and stifle TTA’s; and improve the quality of our surgical procedures and outcomes with bipolar diathermy, harmonic scalpels and “Enseal” equipment.
