Dr. Jitender Bhandal

ACVS Boarded Surgeon

We are thrilled to welcome Dr Jitender Bhandal to our team as a visiting surgeon. Dr Bhandal is an ACVS Board Certified Surgeon whose clinical practice is dedicated to surgery. He completed his ACVS approved residency in Small Animal Surgery at Michigan Veterinary Specialists, Auburn Hills and Southfield, MI.

Dr Bhandal brings advanced surgical skills to Riverside, allowing us to offer procedures which formerly had to be referred to specialist centres. Among the surgeries we are now able to offer are complex orthopedic procedures such as TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) for Cranial Cruciate Repair, Brachiocephalic Airway syndrome surgery for brachiocephalic dogs (English Bulldog, Pug, Peke etc) and spinal decompressive surgery.
