At the Goddard Veterinary Group, we are proud to be able to offer one of the only laparoscopic spay services in London. Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique for performing abdominal surgery whereby a small camera (laparoscope) is introduced into the abdominal cavity through a very small surgical incision in the abdominal wall which results in smaller scars and quick recovery.
Laparoscopic surgery is much less invasive and therefore less painful making recovery times considerably quicker. Laparoscopic spays can offer up to 65% less post-operative pain than a traditional spay. The technique allows for other keyhole procedures such as biopsies and exploratory surgery, surgeries that are usually undertaken with pets who are extremely ill and the reduced trauma and pain of laparoscopic procedures can be invaluable for the outcome of the patient.
