Soft Tissue Surgery
Fitzpatrick Referrals Interventional Radiology service uses advanced imaging modalities for diagnosis and treatment.
We perform minimally invasive procedures that are often considered the standard of care in human medicine and, until very recently, were not available to animals. Interventional procedures provide options for our patients where conventional therapies do not deliver the best outcome. It is of particular value in managing certain cancer and soft tissue conditions where it is preferable to avoid surgery.
At Fitzpatrick Referrals the majority of our patients require diagnostic imaging procedures. This can vary from standard radiography to advanced diagnostic imaging e.g. MRI or CT.
Advanced imaging modalities enable more accurate and timely diagnosis of both routine and potentially life-threatening conditions. By providing this easily accessible and advanced facility our patients can be treated much more efficiently and effectively.
Fitzpatrick Referrals believes that good rehabilitation is integral to the success of orthopaedic and neuro-surgical intervention, promoting increased mobility, reducing pain, inflammation and recovery time.
We are the only veterinary practice in the country with an in-house team of Chartered Physiotherapists for inpatients and outpatients.
