Our Soft Tissue Surgical Service specializes in surgical procedures of the respiratory tract, urinaryl tract, gastrointestinal tract and skin, in both equine and farm animal patients.

A Better Life

Staffed with senior clinical faculty, residents in surgical training, rotating interns and veterinary technicians, the Soft Tissue Surgery Service strives to provide our patients state-of-the-art care working closely with many of the other departments at the Hospital. The size of our clinical faculty allows us a unique opportunity to collaborate with other clinical services, such as Radiography, Dermatology, Neurology, and Cardiology, providing every patient a tremendous resource of specialists-all under one roof. We appreciate the special relationship between a horse and their owner and we are committed to providing the best possible care for our patients and prompt communication with owner/care takers and primary care veterinarians. Although our service commonly consults with veterinarians and many of our cases are referred, no referral is needed for an appointment. To schedule an appointment with our service, please call (979) 845-3541.

Your Care Team

Our faculty members are leaders in the field of veterinary surgery, and are committed to excellence in clinical service and scientific research. They provide clinical and classroom instruction to veterinary students, interns, and residents preparing for careers in private practice or at other academic institutions. In addition, our faculty members contribute to improving the practice of surgery through consultations and continuing education seminars for practicing veterinarians and the authorship of scientific manuscripts and surgical texts.
