Cave Creek Equine Surgical & Imaging Center (CCESIC) is a specialty equine hospital located near Cave Creek and Carefree, on Carefree Highway in North Phoenix, Arizona. The hospital was opened in 2002 by Dr. Ross Rich who has focused on providing high quality care in sports medicine, diagnostics, imaging and surgery for performance-related problems in the young and mature elite equine athlete. Dr. Rich has recently retired from this practice but Lameness evaluation, orthopedic and respiratory diseases as well as Regenerative Medicine remain the primary focus at Cave Creek Equine Surgical & Imaging Center. However, the hospital now also provides ambulatory and in-house services for routine and preventative care as well as treatment for general elective and orthopedic emergency procedures in the horse. CCESIC strives to keep the veterinarians, technicians, office staff and especially our clients (through biannual educational seminars) updated in the most innovative care of the horse from the beloved pet to international competition horse.
