Laparoscopy

For this minimally-invasive surgery, a laparoscope (camera) is inserted through an incision in the abdomen to thoroughly examine the organs. By making additional small incisions (ports), Avets' surgeons perform procedures including laparoscopic liver biopsy, ovariectomy (spay), cryptorchid (retained testicle) castration, and prophylactic gastropexy to prevent GDV (gastric dilatation-volvulus, aka bloat). In other words, tiny instruments and tiny incisions generally result in tiny recovery time.
