Surgery Department at Toronto Animal Health Partners in North York

A veterinary surgeon is a specialist that has been trained to provide advanced surgical care and procedures to patients in need. Our team of specialty surgeons perform procedures to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of your pet.

The surgical team works in close association with all services in our hospital, including the critical care specialists, oncologists, internal medicine specialists and others, both in case management and direct in-hospital referrals. This ensures that your dog or cat receives the best care from the most detailed and specialized team.

At Toronto Animal Health Partners, we are equipped with 5 state-of-the-art surgical suites dedicated to orthopedic, soft tissue or neurologic surgical procedures. We have equipment to perform minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy and thoracoscopy) as well as image guided surgery with an OEC 9900 C-arm fluoroscopy system to assist with real-time position and interventional procedures.
