Minimally Invasive Abdominal Surgery for Monterey Animal Companions

Laparoscopic/Abdominal Surgery at MPVESC

Similar to arthroscopic pet surgery, laparoscopy makes use of a camera-equipped endoscope to perform internal surgery on companion animals. Laparoscopic procedures, however, are specifically concerned with surgical treatment of a patient's abdominal region and internal organs. Monterey Peninsula Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center offers our clients professional veterinary laparoscopy services through Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital's board-certified specialty referral surgeons working at our facility. All laparoscopic surgery cases are referred to these partnering specialists through our general pet care practice.

Laparoscopic Veterinary Surgery: An Overview

Using highly advanced veterinary monitoring technology, a specialty surgeon is able to use a laparoscope to visually address and treat specific areas in your pet's abdomen with extreme accuracy. As a minimally invasive surgical method, laparoscopy requires only a single, small incision to internally repair severe organ injuries or treat chronic conditions of the digestive system, liver, kidneys, and other vital parts of a patient's internal physiology. Healing and recovery times can be reduced as a result, making laparoscopic surgery an especially viable option for all kinds of pets.

To ensure that your pet is in good hands, we work with highly trained specialty veterinarians to provide our laparoscopic surgery services. The ability to offer expert laparoscopy as part of our unique line of specialty surgeries makes MPVESC a versatile and reliable care provider for your pet. We invite you to get in touch with us if you would like more information on our minimally invasive surgical options.
