LAPAROSCOPY

TINY INCISIONS = BIG BENEFITS 

Laparoscopic surgery—or simply “laparoscopy”— is a minimally-invasive method of soft-tissue surgery that uses smaller “keyhole” incisions versus a traditional larger incision.

LAPAROSCOPY IS MOST COMMONLY USED FOR:

  • SPAY (FEMALE STERILIZATION)
  • RETAINED TESTICLE NEUTER (MALE STERILIZATION)
  • BIOPSIES
  • GASTROPEXY (BLOAT PREVENTION PROCEDURE)

COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL SURGERY, LAPAROSCOPY OFFERS MANY DOCUMENTED BENEFITS, INCLUDING:

  • LESS INVASIVE
  • NO TEARING DUE TO CONTROLLED SEALING & CUTTING
  • BETTER VISIBILITY OF INTERNAL ORGANS
  • LITTLE BLOOD LOSS
  • NO SWELLING—VESSELS AND TISSUES ARE SEALED
  • QUICKER RECOVERY
  • FEWER COMPLICATIONS DUE TO ALL OF THE ABOVE

Even better is the fact that research shows pet who undergo laparoscopic procedures feel significantly less pain than with traditional surgery!

If your pet is scheduled for a surgical procedure, please ask your vet if laparoscopy is an option — we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.
