Services/Contribution/importance:- The Dept. of Surgery and Radiology has been shifted in the new premises from September 2011. The dept provides Academic, Research and, Extension services. Surgery starts with sound knowledge of Theory coupled with familiarization with the instruments and hands on practice on the cases. This Dept. is exclusively rich in availability of the advanced instruments and high number of surgical cases.

       We run the Masters degree program and soon starting the Ph.D. programme. Six students completed their M.V.Sc. Surgery is one of the main discipline in Animal Healthcare, production and, training. It holds crucial position in Equine Industry and Pet Animal Practice. Hence, in addition to ample job opportunities, the Surgeons are opting more for private practice.
