One incision is for a camera to visualize the structures in the body, and the other is to place the instrument for the procedure.
Studies have shown major benefits to the patient in terms of reduced postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker return to normal physical activities.
Additionally, we see reduced wound complications that can be associated with large incisions and most importantly, we see increased postoperative comfort in our patients.
At Animal Care Center of Castle Pines we offer the following services laparoscopically:
- Abdominal exploratories
- Liver biopsies
- Laparoscopic-assisted gastropexies
