Department Update: Surgery

We are continuing to search for a new surgeon to join our team at Boston West. It remains our highest priority. We wanted to take a moment to update you on the surgeries we are able to perform at Boston West through our team of Emergency doctors.

Our team of emergency veterinarians will perform the following surgeries:

  • Foreign bodies/obstructions
  • GDVs
  • Splenectomies
  • Cystotomies
  • Pyometra spays
  • C-sections
  • Exploratory surgeries with biopsies
  • Enucleations
  • Some limb amputations and FHOs

Any other advanced emergency surgeries such as Thoracotomies, penetrating traumas, advanced hernias, laparoscopy and arthroscopy, and fracture repairs will be transferred to Mass Vet in Woburn (or another facility of the patients choosing) once they are stable enough to be transferred.
