Advanced Surgery at Tyler Animal Clinic
There is no need to travel long distances and since most surgical cases can go home the same day, you can also rest assured that your dog or cat will be treated and cared for like family by staff members who already know you and your pet. There are times when an injury or disease process calls for the expertise of a Board Certified Surgeon.
What is a Board Certified Surgeon?
Very much like a human surgeon, this is someone who has graduated from veterinary school then more than doubled that time in post-doctoral internship and residency training. After veterinary school, internship and surgical residency, a grueling exam process is undertaken to become Board Certified at which time they become Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons
Dr. Michael Slawienski is a Board Certified Surgeon who has worked in the Cleveland/Akron area for several years. He is available for advanced/complex surgical procedures on dogs and cats on a scheduled basis. Orthopedics/joint surgery, fracture repair, soft-tissue surgery, oncology surgery, neurosurgery and other complex surgical procedures can be performed on premesis. After a diagnosis has been made by one of our doctors and surgery has been recommended, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet with Dr. Slawienski in the morning and surgery will take place that day. In most cases, your pet will go home that evening.
