Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive and generally provide quicker healing and recovery time. Some examples of when we would use the scope include removing fox tails from a dog’s throat, checking for a foreign body or taking biopsies along the digestive tract or in the lungs for further testing.
Dr. Sawa has received extensive training in the various types of laparoscopic procedures, and often these patients are referred to us from other clinics in the city.
Laparoscopy reduces bleeding and swelling for patients, making the recovery process easier. It minimizes the chance of infection that can come with regular surgery. Overall, laparoscopic procedures make it easier on your pets so they will be back to their normal selves more quickly.
