Montana Veterinary Surgical Service (MVSS):
In addition to providing general surgery through our skilled associate veterinarians, GVH patients have access to the advanced surgical skills of Referral Surgeon Dr. Mark Albrecht, ACVS Boarded surgeons Dr. Jason Wheeler and Dr. Doug Rohn through MVSS.
Dr. Albrecht owns both Gallatin Veterinary Hospital, and the referral surgery practice, Montana Veterinary Surgical Service P.C. Dr. Albrecht is a native of North Dakota. He opened a referral surgery practice in Montana’s Bitterroot valley in 1996. He left in the late 90’s to help open the surgical portion of a specialty practice in Omaha, NE, leaving there to serve as a staff surgeon at Denver’s Alameda East Clinic. Alameda East is home to Animal Planet’s ” ER VETS”‘ and Dr. Albrecht appeared in several episodes along with Dr. Wheeler.
