1065. KPI for a Maltese spay done by me

An efficient and not protracted surgery is important for the safety of the animal and for the productivity of the surgeon. Surgical audits need to be done but I have to publish some bench-marks by operating myself.

Spay of a small breed should be less than 20 minutes. One of my cases is  shown in the image. It takes 19 minutes to operate. Overall, the process takes 33 minutes. The lady owner in her late 40s and her mother had gone to the temple to pray for a good outcome.

During surgery, there was some bleeding as the ovaries were abnormal. Probably polycystic.

This dog has false pregnancy at around 3-monthly and even produced milk at the 26th day after spay.
