Laparoscopic Surgery also know as Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is precisely that: Using a “hands-out-of-body-with-tools-inside-body” approach through small incision(s) to accomplish the same surgical procedure as traditional methods, being a “hands-in” approach requiring a larger incision to permit manual access.
Laparoscopy utilizes special telescopic cameras and long surgical instruments to replace the traditional open abdominal “laparotomy”. Several ports or holes are placed to allow the surgeon to easily access the surgical site. The abdominal cavity is also inflated with safe carbon dioxide gas to stretch and raise the muscular wall like a canopy to allow the surgeon to locate internal organs. The same MIS principles are used for surgery in or on the chest cavity and joints, respectively.
Nearly all surgical procedures that are performed inside your pet’s chest or abdomen can be done laparoscopically. Animals enjoy the same benefit as humans as far as proven reduced postoperative discomfort and hospitalization stays.
