I perform many different types of surgery at Hampton Animal Hospital, ranging from routine castrations to very delicate thyroid removal. We generally separate surgeries into 2 groups, soft tissue surgeries or hard tissue surgeries. Hard tissue surgeries are those done on bones. Soft tissue surgeries are those done on any other structure in the body. I can perform most soft tissue surgeries for your pet. I can also perform some hard tissue surgeries. I will refer complicated surgical cases to board certified veterinary surgical specialists. We have an excellent group in town at Veterinary Specialty Services. We can also refer your pet a College of Veterinary Medicine, at either the University of Missouri - Columbia or the University of Illinois - Champaign Urbana.
