Minimally invasive surgical and laparoscopic procedures

Dear Colleagues:

The purpose of this letter is to let you know that the VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital in conjunction with VCA California Animal Hospital Veterinary Specialty Group is now offering minimally invasive surgical (MIS) and laparoscopic procedures. Procedures include but are not limited to ovariectomy and ovariohysterectomy, gastropexy, cryptorchid neuters, and laprascopic biopsies.
During the week of October 11th, 2010, Dr. Clarence Rawlings, DACVS, of the University of Georgia will be at our clinics lecturing and performing laparoscopic procedures. Dr. Rawlings is one of the pioneers of small animal
laparoscopy and MIS. He has published several papers on laparoscopic procedures and travels extensively training individuals on these procedures at veterinary teaching hospitals and clinics throughout the United States. We will also be sending out information for an evening dinner and continuing education meeting to be held on Monday October 11th with Dr. Rawlings presenting detailed information on these procedures. If you have clients with pets in need of laparoscopy or MIS or you would like to talk about potential cases, please contact Dr. Nicole Buote, DACVS, at 310-479-3336 (Wednesday-Saturday) or via e-mail at njbuote@aol.com or Dr. Sady Cabrera, at 310-473-2951 (Sunday-Wednesday) or via e-mail at sady.cabrera@vcahospitals.com, as we will be able to offer substantial discounts for these procedures during the week of October 11th.

Sincerely,
Sady Cabrera, DVM (Staff Surgeon)

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
