Today we performed a shoulder arthroscopy at Penmellyn vets. We turn the theatre lights down at our St Columb surgery theatre during arthroscopy so subtle colour changes of cartilage are better visualised.
The 9 year old Collie had marked lameness due to a frayed medial glenohumeral ligament and an inflamed biceps tendon origin. He was sent home with cortisone and rest advised.
‘The team at Regent Court Vets have been extremely happy to refer patients to Colin Whiting and the Penmellyn surgical team.
They have looked after a number of our clients and patients with great skill and care undertaking complex surgical procedures and after care.
We do not hesitate when considering A30 referrals for our patients.’
