Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique used in both humans and animals.


A 5mm surgical telescope is inserted through a small keyhole sized incision. This camera allows surgeons to view magnified organs on a monitor. Additional small incisions are made to facilitate the use of surgical instruments, and surgeons can perform a more precise, less painful surgery, avoiding the traditional large incisions.

Advantages of Laparoscopic surgery include but are not limited to, smaller incisions in your animal, less pain and bruising, faster recovery, less blood loss, quicker return to normal activity, allows for same-day return home, excellent visualization of organs, and less scarring. The most common procedures are Diagnostic Laparoscopy, Laparoscopic Spay, Ear Scoping (Video Otoscopy for ear cleaning), Bladder Stones, Nose (Nasal Exam and Biopsy), Laparoscopic Gastropexy for GDV or Bloat, and Soft Palate Resections.
