Our specialist surgeons, Dr Andrew Levien and Dr Nina Lorenz, are experts in a number of surgeries, including orthopaedic, and soft tissue reconstructive surgery.

So, whether you’re a pet owner or a referring vet, you can trust your beloved animal into our capable hands

Affordable mobile surgery

It’s not easy dealing with a sick animal that needs specialised surgery.

As a vet and as a pet owner, when you have a sick pet with a complicated condition, you want to make sure they receive the best possible specialist care. But you also want to make sure the surgery is affordable.

At VSOS, we are committed to providing affordable surgical care for pets. It’s one of our foundational values and why we created VSOS’s mobile surgical services.

We want to improve the quality of life for all sick pets. That’s why our mobile specialist services reduce the cost of surgery by bringing our team to your vet clinic. And we bring all our equipment with us. You can be assured of expert care.

And as a referring vet, you can rest in the knowledge that you’ve chosen a true surgical partner. Because we work in close partnership with you while your patient is in our care. And we keep on working with you, communicating every step of the way, after surgery, to ensure your patient recovers well.

Mobile orthopaedic surgery

Dr Andrew Levien is a leading veterinary orthopaedic surgeon. He not only completed a three-year surgical residency at the Animal Medical Center (AMC) in Manhattan, USA. He worked with the leading surgeons who invented the hip replacement system used in veterinary medicine today.

Because he’s worked with some of the best vet surgeons who’ve done the most hip replacements on dogs and cats, Dr Levien has seen every possible problem that can arise in surgery… and how to fix it.

So you couldn’t leave your pet or patient in more capable hands.

And because orthopaedic surgeries can be more invasive procedures, our team makes the welfare of the animal the highest priority, ensuring accurate pain management plans are in place.
