Minimally Invasive Joint Surgery & Repair for Monterey Pets
Monterey Peninsula Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center is proud to offer our clients the option of specialized arthroscopic surgery for companion animals. This minimally invasive surgical procedure makes use of a veterinary arthroscope to visually assist board-certified surgeons in repairing damaged joints in patients.
Advantages of Veterinary Arthroscopy
Arthroscopic joint surgery has advantages over traditional open surgery methods and can be a viable option for patients requiring highly specialized care. In arthroscopic procedures, a small camera attached to a veterinary endoscope is used to produce images of a joint in your pet's body that has sustained serious injury. These images are then transmitted to monitoring screens in our surgical suite, enabling a trained specialty surgeon to perform visually assisted repairs on the very small and complex components of your animal companion's joints.
This surgical method allows joints to be repaired internally, with a high degree of accuracy and control. And because only a small incision is required for arthroscopic procures, the overall toll taken on a patient's system is reduced significantly. This also cuts down on healing time following the operation.
We work with the Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital board-certified specialty referral surgeons to ensure that the best-trained experts in the field conduct all arthroscopic procedures at MPVESC. Please call us with any questions you may have regarding these unique services.
