So, what exactly is "mobile surgery”?
Since 2015, the Spire team—which includes Dr. McAbee and two dedicated surgery technicians—has been traveling to veterinary practices to perform specialized or complicated surgeries that require advanced surgical training. We bring our own surgical supplies, instruments, implants, and all necessary equipment for surgery. The veterinary practice provides an anesthesia technician as well as the operating room, and generally oversees postoperative care following surgery. The team travels to between one and three hospitals on a typical day. We will continue to provide this service in addition to our services at the surgery center.
Dr. McAbee is available for consultations at Spire Canine Orthopedics, over the phone, or via e-mail prior to surgery; and he welcomes communication with veterinarians as well as pet owners. }
