We can perform most surgeries on site. This could range from spaying and neutering, to simple removal of skin tumours, to abdominal surgery such as bladder stone removal or removal of an intestinal foreign body, to orthopaedic surgery such as repairing a broken bone or surgery to stabilise a torn cruciate ligament in a knee.
Note that there will be some surgeries that would require referral to a specialist surgeon – we will advise on the best course of action on a case by case basis.
Our operating theatre has two Isoflurane gas anaesthetic machines and oxygen is supplied by either an oxygen concentrator or by an oxygen cylinder, so we always have a back-up. We also have a back-up generator so we can continue operating during power cuts – without compromising patient safety.
Patients are normally admitted between 07h30 and 08h30 in the morning and are discharged between 16h00 and 18h00. Food and water have to be withheld from 22h00 the previous night. Note that surgery is done from Monday to Friday and not on weekends or public holidays. Surgical procedures have to be pre-booked via reception.
