Lehigh Regional Veterinary Surgical Specialty will host its official grand opening in Bethlehem Sept. 14.
The event, sponsored by the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, will take place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at 4473 Hanoverville Road.
Lehigh Regional Veterinary Surgical Specialty (LRVSS) is the only 100% surgery center with a Board-certified surgeon in the region. The occasion marks the practice’s one-year anniversary.
According to the chamber, the practice specializes in orthopedic, “soft tissue” and cancer surgery for dogs and cats, with an emphasis on pain management and safe anesthesia.
The most common procedure at LRVSS is ACL surgery, followed by broken bones, tumor and cancer removal, dislocated joints, and reconstructive surgery, LRVSS said.
Phil Zeltzman, a Board-certified surgeon for 16 years, has assembled a team of veterinary nurses with a passion for helping animals.
“They use ‘fear-free’ and ‘low-stress’ techniques on all patients. Their treatment sheets include regular ‘TLC’ in addition to regular pain medications and antibiotics,” the chamber said.
For almost exactly 1 year, LRVSS has helped pets from all over the Lehigh Valley, up to the Poconos, and South to Philadelphia, as well as cats and dogs from across the state and mid-Atlantic region.
