Our upper airway service is led by our clinical director and consultant surgeon Tom Witte, who has worked alongside the leading airway surgeons of the world, including the field-leading airway surgery team at Cornell University in New York. Tom has unrivalled experience in the region when it comes to surgery of the upper airway, particularly in thoroughbred racehorses and elite level sportshorses.
As well as a full videoendoscopy unit, we are able to offer state of the art exercising overground endoscopy, which can be used where necessary to evaluate your horse’s airway when it matters most; during exercise. This enables us to make the most accurate diagnosis and therefore deliver the best possible outcome once treatment has been completed.
Where surgery is necessary, our state of the art surgical facility has everything required to perform the very latest in treatment. Laser surgery of the upper airway is now commonplace, and this can be performed in the standing sedated horse at the clinic. To have a full investigation of upper airway function please contact the clinic and arrange an appointment.
