What are soft tissue surgical procedures?

Soft tissue procedures are a wide umbrella of surgeries that are related to your pet's soft tissues. These include their skin, muscles and internal organs. Soft tissues procedures address disorders, some diseases, injuries and conditions affecting these vital parts of your pet's body.

Soft tissue surgery encompasses the majority of surgical procedures that are not in the sphere of orthopedic surgery, which deals with the musculoskeletal system.

We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for dogs and cats suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders, as well as cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin and oncological disorders.

Soft Tissue Surgery FAQs

  • What soft tissue surgeries do you offer?

    At Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic, we offer a whole suite of soft tissue surgeries from routine, scheduled operations to urgent care operations. 

    Our veterinary team offers soft tissue procedures, including the following, to our Brodheadsville patients:

    • Mass Removals
    • Foreign Body Surgery
    • Wound Repair
    • Cleft Palates
    • Lar Par Surgery
    • Splenectomies
    • Biopsies
  • What happens during the consultation appointment?

    Prior to their surgery, we will invite you to our facility to review your pet's medical history and perform a physical examination, blood work and any other appropriate diagnostic tests.

    This is to both help diagnose the nature of your pet's condition, and help determine whether they are at risk of anesthesia-related complications.

    Diagnostic testing may include radiographs (x-rays), ultrasounds, and biopsies. Once the results are back, a surgery plan is made and discussed with you.

  • Do the consultation appointment and surgery happen on the same day?

    No. The consultation appointment is a pre-operative exam that your animal must undergo prior to surgery.

    Once any diagnostic test results have come back from our lab, a surgery appointment can be scheduled. 

  • How long does surgery take?

    Surgeries usually last between two to four hours. The duration depends on the type of surgery being performed and on your pet’s specific condition.

  • Does my pet have to stay overnight?

    Many of our patients need to stay in the hospital over night after surgery so that we can monitor them as they recover from the procedure. Depending on the type of surgery that is performed and how quickly they recover after anesthesia and surgery, your pet may be able to go home on the same day.
