Our Upleatham Clinic boasts a fully equipped surgical suite, with dedicated padded knock down and recovery box, inflatable table and arthroscopic equipment for keyhole surgery on joints. In addition we have excellent equipment for monitoring your horse whilst under anaesthetic, including an ECG and blood pressure monitor.
The majority of surgeries that we perform are orthopaedic, and include arthroscopy, wound repair / treatment of infected joints and tendons, kissing spine surgery, splint bone removal, neurectomies for foot or suspensory ligament lameness, fracture fixation and treatment of angular limb deformities in foals. We are also happy to perform rig operations, sinus surgery, eye removal, mass removals and colic surgery.
We invite visiting specialists to perform our upper respiratory tract surgeries (tie forward / tieback etc). The surgeon of choice depends on the procedure involved and our client’s preferences.
