Laparoscopy Surgery

Laparoscopy Surgery from Richview Animal Hospital

At Richview Animal Hospital, we are a veterinarian in Etobicoke and our goal is to make sure that every animal in the local area has access to a vet who will take good care of their furry friends. While the backbone of what we do involves preventative medicine, there are also situations where acute care might be required. In some situations, this might even involve surgery. We try not to be any more invasive than we must. That is why we provide laparoscopy surgery to our patients at our animal hospital.

What Is Laparoscopy Surgery?

There are multiple types of surgery that we can perform at the Richview Animal Hospital; however, we want to use the smallest incisions possible. That is why we have invested in laparoscopic surgery. For those who might not know, laparoscopic surgery involves using a series of incredibly small incisions to create ports in the patient. 

After this, we place cameras and tools through these ports that allow us to operate without having to open up the patient completely. We can use laparoscopic surgery to treat issues involving the spleen, kidneys, and gallbladder. This technique has a number of benefits that all of our patients should note.

What Are the Benefits of This Type of Surgery?

When we recommend laparoscopic surgery to our patients, there are a few benefits that everyone should note. First, because the incisions are smaller, the risks of complications are much lower. This is because there is a much lower risk of an infection developing. In addition, patients are going to recover more quickly thanks to laparoscopic surgery. The cuts are incredibly small and will heal quickly. 

Second, laparoscopic surgery also allows us to operate faster. Because the cuts are much smaller, it will take a much shorter period for us to open and close our patients. This means that patients will be under anesthesia for a much shorter period.

These are a few of the most important benefits of laparoscopic surgery that we enjoy at our animal hospital.
