We are a fast-paced hospital with a large caseload and a variety of both medical and surgical cases. We have board certified emergency and critical care specialists available for consulting on cases, and over 20 doctors on staff. Despite the pressure of emergency medicine, we offer a friendly atmosphere and enjoy mentoring and assisting one another with challenging cases. We have digital radiography, ultrasound and in-house bloodwork. The Gilbert Clinic offers additional learning opportunities, as we have access to board-certified specialists in surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, ophthalmology, oncology, dermatology, radiology and dentistry.
Our emergency doctors perform a variety of surgeries and manage complex medicine and critical cases. Doctors have twice daily cageside rounds, wich provide the opportunity for externs to learn and ask questions about case management. Some of our most common surgical emergencies include GDV's, dystocias, pyometras, foreign bodies (gastrotomy and enterotomy), hemoabomen, and bite wound explore/repair. Other common emergencies include blocked cats, diabetic ketoacidosis, pancreatitis, anemia, trauma, toxicities, heat stroke, and rattlesnake envonomation.
