The operating room (OR) warming technologies developed by VetORSolutions were praised for their practicality and cost effectiveness at the recent Veterinary Innovation Summit (VIS).

The Oregon-based veterinary start-up emerged victorious at the event’s annual Pitch Competition, taking home a cash prize and industry recognition.

VetORSolutions, which offers patient positioning and warming products, was celebrated for its identification and solution of a core clinical problem faced by veterinary ORs, as well as its clear economic projections on realized savings, return on investment (ROI), increased profit margins, and, finally, revenue growth veterinary surgeons could experience by utilizing its products.

Established in 2021, VetORSolutions was founded by Lloyd Hiebert, MD, an anesthesiologist with more than 30 years of experience. Dr. Hiebert, who is also the company’s CEO, says he utilized lessons learned in the human OR to provide clinical solutions for veterinary surgeons.

“The recognition of winning the VIS Pitch Competition represents incredible validation to our product line,” he says. “We’re pleased the judges recognized the importance of our products as the veterinary industry faces increasing workload and economic challenges. Our goal is to accelerate improvement in patient care and make every veterinary OR a profit center.”
