Soft Tissue Surgery

VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital offers many soft tissue surgery services, either through our general practice or our specialty surgery services. Soft tissue surgery refers to surgery on any body part excluding the following: bones/joints (orthopedic surgery), heart (cardiac surgery), or nervous system (neurologic surgery). Examples of common soft tissue surgeries include mass removals, gastrointestinal surgery (to remove foreign objects or diseased sections of intestine), bladder surgery (to remove stones), liver surgery (to remove masses or diseased lobes), and splenic surgery (to remove diseased spleens or masses). There are many other soft tissue procedures performed. Your veterinarian will discuss what your pet requires and whether or not they should be referred to our specialty surgery service. Pain management medications are standard with all of our soft tissue surgery procedures to ensure your pet's comfort and speedy recovery.
