As our clients know we like to keep at the forefront of veterinary medicine and surgery and we invested early on in key-hole surgical equipment. We perform keyhole procedures frequently and are one of the few practices in the UK to do so.
Keyhole procedures involve the use of a laparoscope (camera) to visualise the internal organs and an electrocautery device seals the blood vessels and dissects the attachments. 2 small (<5mm) incisons are made instead of opening up sevral centimetre incisons. Dogs experience less pain with these procedures compared to open surgery and have a shorter post operative recovery of 1 day restricted exercise compared to 7.
Keyhole Procedures: laprascopic ovariectomy, Cryptorchid castrations, organ biopsies, gastropexies
If you want to know whether keyhole surgery would be the kinder choice for your dog please phone the surgery where one of our team will be happy to discuss the procedure with you.
