surgery-sageSAGE’s veterinary surgeons are currently trained in diagnosis and treatment of all surgical problems, including soft tissue surgery, cancer surgery, orthopedic surgery, and neurologic surgery. The board certified surgeons at SAGE are part of our team of doctors committed to providing the best possible care for your pet.

Whenever possible, our veterinary surgeons use minimally invasive techniques, such as:

  • Arthroscopy (Joints)
  • Laparoscopy (Abdomen)
  • Thoracoscopy (Chest)

Minimally invasive surgery is associated with less tissue injury and a quicker return to normal activity.
Our board certified surgeons are part of a team of SAGE doctors committed to providing state-of-the-art care for your pet. They frequently consult with our internists, oncologists, and support staff – a team approach that helps ensure your pet will have access to the most advanced medical and surgical care.

Allie Pit Bull Fractured Jaw RadiographsSAGE Surgery in the News

In September 2017, a pit bull puppy from Hayward was brought to SAGE Dublin suffering from multiple injuries that included a severely fractured left jaw. Taking a closer look, SAGE Dublin surgeon Dr. Tim Sellmeyer noticed that “Allie” could not close her mouth and he suspected her right jaw was also injured. CT scans proved his hunch was correct.  This rare and complex injury required extensive surgery,

We interviewed Dr. Sellmeyer for the SAGE blog to learn more about the surgical approach he took to get Allie back on her paws.
