Urolith Procedure Reach Out


Dr. Ismay has been compiling a research project that includes his invention of the pneumatic impact lithotrite. This tool has been specially designed to make removal of  equine uroliths less expensive and much easier on both the patient and the doctor. Dr. Ismay has used this instrumentation with great success both in house and also at CSU in Fort Collins, CO. He does, however, need a few more cases to make his research complete. Only patients that actually have a bladder stone can be used in this research. If you or any one you know has a horse that meets this requirement, let us know. We can give a discounted price on exam and procedure to be used in this research.
