Dr. Brisson is a surgeon at the OVC Companion Animal Hospital and professor of small animal surgery at Ontario Veterinary College.
One of my main areas of focus is minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Interventional radiology procedures--a sub-category of MIS--is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases through a small incision or no incision, using imaging technology such as fluoroscopy (a real-time X-Ray device) to deliver devices such as stents.
One of my current projects is examining the use of a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to target non-resectable tumours without surgical incisions. Our study aims to investigate surgical treatment options for bone tumours in a minimally-invasive approach in dogs.
