White Pine Veterinary Hospital is proud to announce our new state of the art service minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery offers a minimally invasive option to your typically routine or even emergency surgeries.
Through laparoscopy advantages, White Pine is now able to offer surgeries that through keyhole incisions are less invasive to your pets, therefore leading to less stress to the patients, less anesthesia time, and quicker healing and recovery time.
Laparoscopic surgery is performed through keyhole incisions within the abdomen. These small incisions allow for a telescoping rod and lens system connected to a video camera to be inserted and allow for visibility throughout the procedure, the other incision is then used to fill the abdomen with carbon dioxide to create space to work, additional equipment is also used through that keyhole incision to finish and complete the surgery. Through this new state of the art service, White Pine Veterinary Hospital will be able to offer several abdominal procedures including spays and neuters (including removing retained testicles), organ biopsies, and so much more.
