    Sorry you are having to learn about laryngeal paralysis... I recommend that you join this yahoo group and look at their database of experienced surgeons..organized by location http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/LP/info

    Go to www.acvs.org this should allow you to find a boarded veterinary surgeon near you. "Tie back" is a pretty routine procedure that any boarded surgeon should be able to perform

    That is one approach, but not the one I chose for my dog. Some surgeons see lots of LP cases and do tiebacks nearly every week, others do not. I wanted a surgeon that had performed the procedure hundreds of times with a high success rate and low incidence of aspiration pneumonia. We chose the NC State vet school soft tissue service.

    That's great. But since aspiration pneumonia is not related to surgeon experience it seems you are only partially informed. Laryngeal paralysis is a respiratory expression of a systemic neuropathy. All dogs are at a 20% LIFELONG risk and not just a post-operative risk. The reason for this is because their esophageal motility is abnormal. This has been shown by Michigan state in a study a few years ago. A tie back is a common surgery and after doing a residency at a high volume practice or vet school you will have done this hundreds within no time. NC State is an excellent vet school. When you go to a vet school you may have the senior facility, facility assisting/ teaching resident, or a second/ third year resident only. Just something to think about
