Surgical capabilities

With a seemingly infinite number of options for developing a surgical model, where do you begin?  Choosing the right model is critical to getting the most out of your surgical exploration and you need a partner who not only has vast surgical expertise, but a focus on you and meeting your specific objectives.  Whether you are looking for routine infusion catheter implantation or complex, customer-specific model development projects, Envigo supports you with a team of expert surgeons, veterinarians, and scientists who collaborate with you from initial inquiry through to completion.  Through our specialized model development services and in-house expertise, we strive to develop bespoke models and novel techniques that achieve your experimental goals.
