Vet Tech Series – Radio Surgery, Multi-Parameter Electronic Monitoring, and Ultrasound Are All In Use at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains (ACMP).

Ultrasound is not just for Humans any more

Whereas stem-cell therapies are still in the early stages of being available for use in veterinary medicine, many other advanced clinical techniques and equipment have already been fully integrated into veterinary medicine at leading veterinary clinics and veterinary hospitals. At the ACMP, we use radiosurgery for many surgical procedures and the same type of ultrasound equipment to diagnose disease, illness, and injuries in veterinary medicine that have been mainstays in human medicine for decades.

 

 

 

Ultrasound allows our veterinarians to make quick and highly accurate diagnoses of many veterinary ailments with the least possible amount of discomfort to your pet. Radiosurgery allows small animal veterinarians to perform many types of medical procedures and repairs with an approach that is safer and associated with greatly reduced bleeding, tissue trauma, risk of complications, and reduced recovery time than the same procedures performed by traditional surgical techniques. Because radiosurgery allows veterinarians to simultaneously repair and cauterize wounds, it is much safer than traditional surgical approaches and associated with a greatly reduced risk of intraoperative bleeding.

At ACMP, we also utilize multi-parameter electronic monitoring of our patients throughout their surgery to make their anesthesia as safe as possible. This allows us to add the additional layer of safety by ensuring that your pet is exposed to the lowest necessary concentration of chemical anesthetics. According to Dr. Paul Sedlacek,

“All of our veterinarians and vet techs are fully trained in the multi-parameter use of anesthetic monitoring equipment, including the constant monitoring of blood pressure, electro-cardiac activity, pulse oximetery, and respiration…This allows us to identify any clinically relevant changes that might otherwise be missed and to respond to them immediately and long before they can become problematic…essentially, veterinary surgery at ACMP  is as closely monitored, and therefore, as safe as surgery in any

human hospital.”
