Comprehensive Pet Surgeries at Your Local Animal Hospital in Santa Barbara

La Concepcion Animal Hospital offers most pet surgeries your animal may need in our Santa Barbara animal hospital. The following are some of the procedures available to you from our vet with over 20 years of experience.

Orthopedic Surgery

Helping your pet with joint pain is something you can depend on our team for. We treat conditions related to the musculoskeletal system including:

  • Meniscal tears
  • Anterior cruciate ligament tears
  • Fractures
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Dislocation
  • Patella luxation
  • Osteochondritis
  • Growth plate injuries

We offer TPLO and other treatment options to address immediate and long-term needs of pets.

Soft Tissue Surgeries

The soft tissues of the body involve the organs and many components of your pet’s body including the cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal system, the throat, nose, and ears, and much more. Our surgical procedures can help to treat conditions ranging from mild to severe including:

  • Cancer
  • Genetic defects
  • Infections
  • Perforations
  • Foreign object removal
  • Matter removal
  • Tumor and cyst removal
  • Organ removal

Maxillofacial Surgeries

Another area of focus is maxillofacial surgeries. These surgical procedures are related to injuries and disease of the nasal cavity, ears, oral cavity, and the skull. Some of the surgeries we offer include treatment for conditions such as:

  • Mandibular and maxillary fractures
  • Tumor and polyp removal
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Ear surgery
  • Salivary gland surgery
  • Thyroidectomy
  • TMJ surgery
  • Laryngeal surgery

We may also recommend surgical procedures here for reconstruction after an injury or other trauma. This includes treatment for soft and hard palates in the mouth, face, and ears.

Minimally Invasive Procedures

Whenever possible, our goal is to perform surgical procedures as minimally invasively as possible. We use an endoscope with surgical tools that allows us to make smaller incisions to reduce the risk of infection and to speed healing time. This type of procedure may be available for needs such as:

  • Organ removal
  • Biopsies
  • Stone removal
  • Exploratory procedures
  • Fracture repairs

This may be an out-patient procedure for your pet. Ask us if the procedures we provide can be done through this method.

Spay and Neutering

We encourage spaying and neutering as a way to control the pet population but also because it can improve your pet’s demeanor, often helping to reduce aggression, improve behaviors, and to minimize territorial marking or roaming.
