Laparoscopic Surgery: A Cut Above
Laparoscopic surgery is a safe and minimally invasive technique in which doctors insert short, narrow tubes into small incisions in a pet’s abdomen. The doctor then uses these tubes to cut, sew, and manipulate tissue.
Richman Animal Clinic is thrilled to be able to offer this service to our patients. Laparoscopic surgery is often the best option for many procedures, including:
- Spay, Ovariohysterectomy, Ovariectomy
- Gastropexy-stomach torsion
- Retained Testicle(s), Cryptorchid Neuters, Vasectomy
- General exploratory surgery
Laparoscopic surgery carries with it a wide array of benefits, all related to your pet’s comfort. Laparoscopy requires a smaller incision than more conventional surgical approaches, which improves your pet’s recovery period, can shorten his or her hospital stay and, most importantly, causes less pain.
If you suspect your pet might benefit from laparoscopic surgery, call us at (440) 585-3600 for a consultation today! Our veterinarians will be happy to discuss the process in greater detail and to conduct a thorough physical exam to determine whether or not your pet is healthy enough for surgery.
