What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than traditional surgery. It allows us to perform certain procedures by making small incisions and inserting a laparoscope to visualize the surgical area. This allows our surgeons to be more precise during surgery and avoid causing unneeded trauma to surrounding tissues.
With laparoscopic surgery, patients can expect less discomfort and faster healing post-op. We often perform spay surgeries using the laparoscope, but we can also perform other abdominal surgeries using this method.
