Minimally Invasive Surgery for Pets
Minimally invasive surgery techniques use smaller incisions to minimize trauma to the body.
If you were to have your gallbladder removed, chances are it would be performed laparoscopically as this is the standard for care in humans. At CARE Surgery Center, our board-certified surgeons use the same advanced technologies to treat your beloved dog, cat or other companion animal.
A high definition fiber-optic camera and thin, long instruments are introduced through keyhole-sized abdominal incisions. This is why laparoscopy is often called “keyhole surgery”. The advantage for the surgeon is improved visualization with high definition magnification and high intensity illumination providing the highest standard of care for your pet during surgery.

More Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery is not limited to laparoscopy. The concept of introducing a small camera and small instruments to operate in a body cavity also applies to the chest (thoracoscopy) and joints (arthroscopy). Minimally invasive surgery also applies to fracture repair. Through the use of advanced imaging (CT and fluoroscopy), many fractures can be repaired through small incisions. Not only does this reduce the trauma to the patient, but by minimizing the approach to a broken bone, it maximizes healing potential. The results are less pain, faster recovery, faster return to function, and faster healing.
At CARE Surgery Center, we specialize in minimally invasive surgery because our goal is to provide the highest standard of veterinary care.
