London Veterinary Specialists accepts surgical referrals for Dr Janet Kovak McClaran. Dr McClaran has joined us from the world-renowned Animal Medical Center in New York, where she was Head of the Department of Surgery. She specialises in advanced soft tissue and oncological (cancer) surgery, enabling us to offer a full range of ENT, thoracic, abdominal and urogenital procedures and treatments.

Dr Kovak McClaran is the only full time soft tissue specialist operating in central London with the support of a full time specialist critical care facility.

Dr McClaran is also one of the world’s leading veterinary laparoscopic surgeons. Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally-invasive or keyhole surgery is available only in a handful of referral facilities in the UK. These techniques are increasingly used in human surgery, with the aim of minimising patient discomfort and speeding recovery, and even complex procedures such as liver resection can be carried out in this way. At London Vet Specialists, we are committed to offering the very latest human surgical advances to our pet patients. As well as more complex procedures involving the thoracic (chest) and abdominal cavities, we also offer laparoscopic surgery for routine procedures such as neutering, bringing the benefits of minimally-invasive surgery to these patients as well.
