New, less painful Spay & Neuter Technique

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique for viewing the internal structures of the abdominal cavity. It involves the use of a laparoscope (camera) inserted into the abdomen. This allows the veterinarian to view abdominal organs magnified on a monitor. Applications are as numerous in veterinary medicine as in human medicine, the most recent being the use of laparoscopy for performing an ovarectomy / ovariohysterectomy (spay) or retained testicle neuter. Veterinary laparoscopy is relatively new requiring special training and surgical expertise.  At Doc·Side Veterinary Medical Center we are proud of the unique level of training and experience of our Laparoscopic Team and even prouder to be one of the first animal hospitals in the state of Maryland to offer laparoscopy to our canine and feline friends.  All procedures are performed in our state-of-the art, minimally invasive surgi-center under the leadership of Dr. Irvin Herling

Preparing your pet for a laparoscopic spay / neuter procedure is no different than preparation made for a traditional spay or neuter.  Your pet should be fasted for 12 hours prior to surgery and preoperative blood work should be obtained. All laparoscopic spays / neuters are performed under general anesthesia.

Benefits to Laparoscopic spays / neuters:

  1. Smaller incisions:  The entire surgery is performed through a few tiny incisions rather than a large abdominal opening.

  2. Less Pain: Smaller incisions are less painful and reduce recovery time.  Controlled cuts

  3. Safer: Laparoscopy is simple to perform and involves very few complications.

Summary

The use of laparoscopy in small animal spay/neuter procedures is quickly becoming the preferred surgical option among pet owners. Once available only for people, animals are now benefiting from the many advantages of these techniques. The most important of these advantages being a safer and less painful surgical experience.
