Brand new high-tech surgery

We are pleased to announce that a new and exciting form of minimally-invasive surgery is now available at Highcroft Veterinary Hospital.

Did you know that Highcroft is already one of the few veterinary practices that is able to provide pets with pacemakers? Although we have been performing minimally-invasive heart procedures for a few years, we’ve now extended our range of similar procedures to include tracheal stenting, tumour embolization, liver shunts and much more.

If you're wondering what all those complicated medical terms mean, let us explain - the collective name for these operations is known as ‘Interventional Radiology (IR)’. IR is a special form of surgery that uses needles and catheter tubes to get to a certain organs, rather than making large incisions in the body like with traditional surgery. This makes recovery time much quicker, less painful and reduces the risk of post-surgery complications.

There are very few veterinary practices in the country that offer this level of expertise, let alone in the area, so we are very excited to have a team of expert vets and high-tech equipment available. Here at Highcroft, we will always strive to provide pets with outstanding care, so no matter if you have a Yorkie with a collapsing trachea, a cat with a cancerous tumour that can’t be removed, or a French Bulldog with a ‘dodgy ticker’, we are always able to give you the best possible treatment options.
