Tzul - a Hood River Adopt-a-Dog success story. From broken tibia ….. to CRAZY
Dr. Petersen has moved his small animal surgical referral practice to Hood River where the practice philosophy is directed towards low volume and personalized care. His primary practice focus continues to be on sports medicine injuries (joints: knees, elbows, shoulders, hips), trauma orthopedics (fractures), and juvenile limb deformities. However, he also offers consultation and surgical reconstruction for many non-emergent soft tissue, oncological, and upper airway disorders (laryngeal paralysis, BAS) as well as specialized preventative procedures like prophylactic gastropexy and vasectomy (as an alternative to castration).
Nursing care and surgical technical support are provided by experienced and certified veterinary technicians. Operating room facilities and equipment are state-of-the-art. Minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques are utilized whenever possible. With few exceptions, all procedures are done on an “out-patient” basis, which means your companion does not need to spend the night at the hospital. Advanced local and regional analgesia protocols are used to provide enhanced intraoperative and postoperative pain management. Rehab and physical therapy regimens are incorporated into the postoperative recovery plan when indicated.
