Key-hole surgery

LAPAROSCOPIC SPAYS

What is Laparoscopy?

Laparoscopy is commonly known as ‘key hole surgery’. It has been used in human surgery for years and now has been developed for use in veterinary surgery. Instead of a large incision into the abdomen to perform surgeries, we are able to use very small incisions and using a camera along with small instruments to perform surgeries. 

When do we use Laparoscopy?

We are using it for abdominal surgeries such as ovariectomies (spay), cryptorchid surgery (undescended testicles) and organ biopsies.

What are the benefits?

  • incisions are significantly smaller, so there is less trauma to the muscles and other tissues
  • recovery time is much reduced
  • there is less pain associated with the surgeries
  • a lower risk of infections
  • reduced surgery time and therefore time spent under anaesthesia and a happier pet!
