A number of cat eye surgeons have announced that they will no longer perform vaginal and anal surgeries, a decision that has sparked some debate among medical professionals.
This is the second time in two years that cat eye operations have been banned from the U.S.
A recent survey conducted by the Cat Eye Foundation of the United Kingdom found that almost half of the surgeons surveyed said they were either considering or planning to stop performing vaginal and/or anal cat eye procedures in the U:In response to the news, cat eye patients have been posting pictures and videos online in which they discuss the procedure, which has long been controversial in the country.
Some doctors, however, have expressed a more positive attitude toward the procedure.
“I have been told that surgery with cat eyes is safe and can be done safely and painlessly,” Dr. James Krawczyk, a specialist in cat eye restoration at the University of California, San Francisco, told CNN.
“They have a very strong medical opinion that cats are healthy and don’t need to be removed.”
According to Dr. Krawszyk, cat eyes are a relatively new procedure in the United States, and they’re usually performed on cats that have had cosmetic surgery to increase their looks.
“These cat eye implants were a bit of a curiosity for me,” he told CNN in an interview.
“I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m really excited about this new surgery for cats.”
According the Cat Eyes Foundation, more than 200,000 cat eyes have been installed in the US, with an estimated 7.7 million surgeries.
The surgeries include:Vaginal and anal cat eyes:Dr. Kroll said cat eyes were a novelty in the medical field.
“It was kind of like the first wave of artificial insemination,” he said.
“So you had all the excitement of a couple of guys getting the job done.
It was the first time that surgeons were doing surgery on a live animal.”
Dr. Sridhar Ramakrishnan, director of the Cat-Eye Center of Excellence at the Mayo Clinic, agreed that cat eyes aren’t the most common surgery performed in the USA.
“In the last 20 years, it has become pretty standard procedure,” he noted.
“But I think this is a case where there is a concern with the surgery.”
In a statement to CNN, the Cat Foundation said that “cat eye surgery is safe, simple and can have a significant benefit for cats who have had surgeries or cosmetic surgery that have not been successfully done.”
