ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospitals at ACVIM 2017!

We had a blast at ACVIM, which is a veterinary conference for all of the specialties under the Internal Medicine College such as cardiology, neurology, and internal medicine.

We spent two full days in our booth in the exhibit hall to meet new doctors, specialists, and technicians. It was so nice to catch up with old friends Luke and Indy from Puppy Up, and of course our veterinary pals.

Dr. Robles Has Your Back!

Dr. Clarisa Robles is a board-certified neurologist and neurosurgeon who works at our Los Angeles hospital. She’s seen here performing a hemilaminectomy, a surgery in which a portion of the vertebra is removed.

Each vertebra contains two pedicles and lamina, which are bony sections that form the sides of the vertebral arch and function as a base for the vertebra. The purpose of a hemilaminectomy is to remove a portion of the pedicle and lamina while still maintaining the stability of the spine.

The removal of bone allows access into the spinal canal to remove any material compressing the spinal cord, such as herniated disc material or cancerous masses. This helps to release nerve tissue from pressure.

How Long Does A Veterinary Specialist Go To School?

Did you know that veterinary specialists go through four years of undergrad, four years of veterinary school, a one-year internship and a three-to-five-year residency before taking their board exams? After all of that, they then need to acquire continuing education credits to maintain their licenses!

Dr. Clarisa Robles (pictured) is Los Angeles native and a board-certified neurology specialist. Along with her great technical training, she brings with her wonderful communication skills and a fondness for building close relationships with referring veterinarians and her patients’ families. She finds such collaboration allows for the best possible patient and client care.

Her interests include inflammatory brain disease, down dogs, and encephalitis, as well as spinal and intracranial surgery.
