We carry out a wide variety of operations in our two operating theatres at Bilsen Equine Clinic. We specialize in orthopedic operations such as arthroscopies, OCD resections (“chip operations”), arthrodeses, carpal tunnel operations, fasciotomies, fetlock ring ligament surgery, grip bone (partial) resection, hoof surgery, osteosynthesis, tendon surgery or perivascular sympathectomy.
Standard operations such as castrations, eye operations etc. also take place at Bilsen Equine Clinic regularly.
For colic operations, we will be happy to refer you to equine clinics nearby with a corresponding focus.
How does an operation actually work? What should be considered before and after an operation?
We recommend the following lecture by Dr. Lina Kröger (in german):
The horse is put under general anaesthetic
After the operation, the horse is moved from the operating table to the recovery box
Recovery phase after the operation
