“Keyhole” or laparoscopy has been successfully used for many years in human surgery as it has many advantages when compared to traditional open surgery.
At Brentknoll Veterinary Centre, we are proud to announce that we are now able to offer Laparoscopic neutering (this service is available to female dogs only.)
** We are one of the only Vet Practices offering this advanced technique in Worcester and already we have received a lot of interest. **
What are the benefits of Laparoscopic surgery?:-
- It’s a less invasive method of surgery.
- Less stress and trauma to your pet.
- A dramatic reduction in pain post surgery so normal activity can resume more quickly.
- Smaller incisions so less complications and bruising.
- Faster recovery times.
Keyhole surgery improves how well and how much the surgeon can see during the procedure so the risk of any surgical complications is significantly reduced.
When compared to traditional open surgery which requires a long incision along the stomach, keyhole surgery requires only 2 or 3 small ports, these small 1 or 2 cm wounds reduce the worry that your pet will lick it’s wounds, decrease the chance of infection, and reduce the requirements for strict rest after surgery.
