Meet Your Board-Certified Surgeon

Dr. Thomas Monaco DACVS-SA has become one of the most trusted names in veterinary surgery across the tri-state area. Since beginning his career as a surgeon over a decade ago, Dr. Monaco has gained a reputation for his surgical outcomes, outstanding bedside manner, and ability to take on some of the most challenging surgical cases.

As a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Monaco underwent extensive surgical training after graduating veterinary school. This included a 1-year internship, a 3-year residency, and passing a rigorous certification exam. After finishing his education, Dr. Monaco returned to the tri-state area where he was born and raised. After many years working at large 24-hour emergency and specialty hospitals in New York and New Jersey, Dr. Monaco and his wife Francesca set out to elevate surgical care by developing New Jersey’s first veterinary surgical center, Vantage.

What Makes Us Different?

We’re proud of our surgical experience and expertise. And we’re proud of the team and facility we’ve built to provide the highest level of surgical care.

Surgical Expertise & Patient Outcomes

Dr. Monaco, a board-certified surgeon with over a decade of experience, is known for his surgical outcomes and success with advanced procedures. He is also surrounded by a team that has extensive experience in surgical care, anesthesia, and pain management. It’s what they do all day, every day.

Client Service & Communication

We understand that considering surgery can be overwhelming and scary. That’s why we take the time to fully educate you on your pet's condition and all available treatment options. We can help you make the most informed decisions, and we’re dedicated to being transparent, empathetic, and timely in our communications.

Complete Focus on the Surgical Patient

You may have noticed that we are not a 24/7 emergency hospital; rather, we are focused on surgery consultations and procedures by appointment only. This means all our attention is on our surgical patients without distraction, elevating the quality of care and creating a less stressful experience for you and your pet.

Doctor-Owned & Operated

Vantage is privately-owned and operated rather than corporate run, with our owners working in the practice daily. Our priority is to personally serve our patients and our community. We are also dedicated to providing an unparalleled work environment for our team so they can perform to the best of their ability.

Modern, State-of-the-Art Facility

Our brand new 6,500 square foot specialty center is equipped with the latest diagnostic, surgical, and anesthesia monitoring equipment. We also thought about every detail of the facility’s design in order to create a modern, warm, calming environment that minimizes stress and maximizes comfort and healing.
