With decades of combined experience, the surgery team at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists boasts some of the most well-known and accomplished veterinary surgery specialists in the region. All of our surgeons are board-certified or residency-trained, ensuring that their standards and level of medicine are the highest in veterinary surgery.

If your pet’s primary care veterinarian advises surgery, a board-certified surgical specialist is one of the best options you have. Here at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists, our surgery specialists have performed most veterinary surgical procedures hundreds or even thousands of times. This advanced training and experience are the keys to a successful outcome for your pet’s surgical care.
