Minimally Invasive Procedures

the Folly Road Animal Hospital is excited to announce that it will be opening a minimally invasive (laproscopic) surgery center in the very near future!  We will be offering minimally invasive canine ovarectomies and ovariohysterectomies, very soon. As the benefits of minimally invasive surgery are more widely recognized by veterinarians and their clients, laparoscopic sterilization of female dogs is growing in popularity. Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy and ovariectomy procedures in dogs are associated with less postoperative pain and a faster return to normal activity versus open sterilization procedures. Currently, we are now offering some laproscopic procedures in advance of the official opening of the full service center.  We are presently offering rhinoscopy (laproscopic exploration and surgery of the sinuses) and cystoscopy (laproscopic exploration and surgery of the bladder). Please check in often for updates on this center’s progress!
