Veterinary Surgery Center of Sarasota is a 5,500-square-foot specialty veterinary clinic dedicated to providing advanced surgical procedures, regenerative medicine, advanced imaging modalities, and physical rehabilitation. In addition to offering some of the most technologically advanced diagnostic and treatment options available in veterinary surgery, VSC was designed with pets in mind. We understand that surgery can be a scary and overwhelming experience (for the pet and the owner). That is why we implemented design elements throughout our clinic based on the principles of the Fear-Free™ program. By choosing VSC, you can feel safe knowing that you and your pet will be in the best hands.
TAKE A VIDEO TOUR OF OUR HOSPITAL
Leed Inspired Hospital
In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint VSC has implemented energy efficient lighting, hospital wide recycling, use of an oxygen generator, and a water-saving cleaning system to control pathogens and environment.
Fear Free™ Hospital Design
VSC is designed to limit patient anxiety and stress with dedicated dog and cat areas, glass kennel doors for visibility, sound proof kennel enclosures conducive for rest, relaxation, and healing.
With the most advanced technology available in patient monitoring equipment, our open-flow treatment area, the use of SmartFlow™ and hospital wide monitors listing real-time patient info, ensures patients can easily be monitored from admission to discharge.
Dedicated Sterility Zone
To minimize infection rates and ensure sterility, the operating theaters and surgical pack/preparation areas are contained in a sterile zone comparable to human hospitals.
Altro™ Walkway Flooring
VSC installed specific non-slip, textured flooring to ensure better footing for our patients. The floor is also found in our gait analysis corridor.
Digital Hospital Records
Paperless patient medical records (exam notes, anesthesia charts, medical images, etc.) are linked digitally and stored to our secure server. This improves safety and security of patient files and helps with ease of transferring records to primary veterinarians.
WHAT SETS US APART
- The Most Progressive Surgery Center in the Region
At VSC, our surgeons always have an eye on the horizon for new techniques, procedures, and treatment options. The field of veterinary surgery is always changing; it is our responsibility to adapt as science and technology develop.
- Unmatched in Services and Procedures Offered
VSC was started by a surgeon and day-to-day operations are overseen by a surgeon. Surgery is what we do: day in, day out. We offer more orthopedic and soft-tissue procedures than any other specialty hospital, many of which are only offered in the state at the University of Florida Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
- Only Facility with 2 Board-Certified Veterinary Surgeons in Sarasota-Manatee Counties
Two heads are better than one, especially in surgery. As the only facility in Sarasota with two board-certified surgeons, our team is able to improve patient care by offering collaboration and cooperation between our surgeons for unique and complicated cases. Medicine and surgery are improved by the exchange of ideas and techniques.
- Surgery at a Human Healthcare Level
Many owners are not aware of the level to which veterinary surgery is performed at specialty veterinary hospitals. From our dedicated sterile operating theaters, pre-surgery checklists, dedicated certified technicians monitoring anesthesia on human medicine-grade monitors and anesthetic machines, extensive use of regional nerve blocks and advanced anesthesia techniques, etc… the level of surgery your pet receives is not too dissimilar to what you might receive at a surgery center or hospital.
- Collaboration with Other Veterinary Specialties to Improve Patient Care
Although we are a surgery center and not a multi-specialty hospital, we consider surgery only part of the treatment plan for your pet. We collaborate with numerous other specialists, including other board-certified neurologists, radiologists, internists, anesthesiologists, and cardiologists to make sure we have covered every aspect of your pet’s care. This might seem like a given, but integration is not a common component of surgery performed by all veterinarians (even within some specialty clinics).
- Leader in Minimally Invasive Surgery on the Central Florida Coast
You will not find a veterinary facility, from Tampa to Naples that performs as many minimally invasive surgeries as VSC performs or the same variety! Whether it is minimally-invasive joint surgery, thoracoscopic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, fluoroscopic fracture repairs, or endoscopic surgery, we perform more procedures than our competitors! We are always looking to improve your pet’s response to surgery while minimizing their pain and stress.
