The Soft Tissue Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals performs surgeries to treat a wide range of conditions in cats, dogs and other companion animals. Our three board-certified surgeons perform the latest surgical procedures including minimally-invasive surgery, laser surgery, respiratory tract surgery, endocrine surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, urinary tract surgery, and reconstructive surgery.
Our surgeons are joined by anesthesiology specialists, who supervise all procedures before and during operations. Our services are integrated with other specialties across the hospital and we frequently seek out consultations and referrals to ensure your pet receives comprehensive care. Surgical patients recover in our 24-hour staffed Intensive Care Unit, where they receive round-the-clock monitoring, intravenous fluid therapy and pain management.
