Due to the demand for surgical suites, all surgical procedures should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. It is occasionally possible to schedule a procedure with as little as one weeks notice. If your protocol requires several timed studies, please schedule the dates as soon as possible so that we may accommodate you.
Surgical procedures are generally scheduled from 8:00 A.M. through 4:00 P.M. Monday through Thursday. Survival procedures must be performed Monday through Wednesday, so to assure adequate post-operative monitoring procedures are maintained.
Scheduling outside of these hours and on weekends is possible, although additional charges must be assessed to cover overtime wages.
At the time a room is reserved please let us know what type of equipment you will require. This will allow us to better prepare for use of the room. Reservations can be made by contacting Veterinary Services at 966-2906 to discuss your needs.
If you find that you will be unable to perform your study on a scheduled date, please contact the Surgery Lab Supervisor as soon as possible. Please refer to the general guidelines for use of the Experimental Surgery Lab.
