At Chaseview we are very proud to have a team with a vast array of surgical skills. We are pleased to be able to offer our clients the choice to have advanced surgical procedures done at our practice. Many of these procedures are not done in first opinion general practice and need to be referred to specialist practices often quite some distance away. This allows our clients to make the choice to have these surgeries done close to home and in familiar surroundings or go further a field if they wish. Some examples of orthopaedic procedures we can offer are:
TTAr repair of cruciate rupture in dogs.
