To provide pets the comprehensive surgical care they deserve, Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies is pleased to share that board-certified veterinary surgeon Dana DeSandre-Robinson, DVM and Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (DACVS-SA), as well as Certified Veterinary Medical Acupuncturist (CVA), has joined our team. Dr. DeSandre-Robinson and our surgical support staff practice precise surgical techniques that are as delicate and non-invasive as possible. We never forget the importance of the patient on the operating table. Your pet will be in good hands if your family vet sends you to Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies for surgical care.
When is a veterinary surgeon needed?
Your family vet will have all the information needed to make that determination. Some surgeries may be better assigned to a board-certified veterinary surgeon in a well-equipped animal hospital like Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies. Our complete surgical services include anesthesia, pain management, orthopedic, oncologic, and thoracic surgeries to help improve your pet’s health in situations such as:
- Complicated cases. Like humans, some pets may have multiple health problems. Older pets requiring surgery may also have respiratory or heart disease. In these cases, surgery and anesthesia can carry more risk, and a surgical specialist may be beneficial.
- Surgeries requiring recovery in an ICU. Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies is staffed 24/7 which allows for constant monitoring of your pet during recovery and diligent monitoring and pain management after surgery. In addition to in-person monitoring, every patient is monitored via video cameras to ensure that we are alerted to any patient changes.
- Surgeries requiring specialized equipment. Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to provide the best care possible. This includes the latest technology for orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries.
- Uncommon surgeries. Dr. DeSandre-Robinson has experience in academic hospitals, large multi-specialty hospitals, and in mobile surgery which allows her to draw on previous experiences with uncommon or rare surgical cases.
If your veterinarian recommends that your pet see a board-certified veterinary surgical specialist, you can be assured that our entire team will welcome your pet and your family and treat you like members of our family. We also commit to clear communication with you and your veterinarian during the surgical and recovery process, so you can feel confident in the care your pet is receiving.
