Laparoscopic Surgery


This advanced surgical method allows our veterinarians to perform operations through tiny incisions that are about the size of a standard writing pen (5 mm). Because the surgery is so precise and targeted, it enables us to greatly reduce the amount of trauma and tissue damage experienced by patients. This means less pain and inflammation, more rapid healing, and a quicker recovery period. Our veterinarians use laparoscopic surgery to perform:

  • Spays

  • Cryptorchid surgeries

  • Urinary bladder stone removals

  • Gastropexy procedures (to protect large-breed dogs from torsion bloat)

  • Exploratory procedures

  • Biopsies

  • Surgical artificial insemination
