Veterinary laparoscopy at Piazza Bologna

The importance of veterinary laparoscopy

Laparoscopic surgery is the solution to prevent your small friend from suffering, long stays in hospital and uncomfortable scarring. The Piazza Bologna Veterinary Centre has decided to use this surgical technique. Thanks to its low rate of invasiveness, your beloved pet will benefit hugely in comparison with traditional surgery, which involves the opening of the abdominal cavity.

Laparoscopic surgery prevents post-operative complications

Veterinary laparoscopy prevents all types of post-operative practices and complications, such as:

  • prolonged use of medication and antibiotics 
  • lengthy recoveries 
  • infections 
  • pain related to the slow healing of wounds 
  • bleeding
  • use of Elizabethan collar 
  • stitches

What does veterinary laparoscopy consist of?

Veterinary laparoscopy (video surgery or keyhole surgery) is a surgical procedure which does not require a laparotomy to be performed, which consists of opening the abdominal cavity. Instead, a camera connected to a monitor is used along with delicate surgical instruments which are inserted through tiny holes in the abdominal walls and limbs. By inserting a gas into the abdominal cavity, it is possible to create enough space to enable the instruments to be operated.

What are the advantages to animals operated by laparoscopy?

Since this state-of-the-art technique was introduced, it has been possible to easily deduce the advantages for the four legged patient, who is only operated on via tiny holes (key holes) without needing to undergo invasive incisions, like traditional surgery. Firstly, it is important to highlight the absence of painful scarring, so the advantage is not just from an aesthetic point of view: your four legged friend can develop favourably without having to undergo a long and painful process, they will feel much less pain and will be subject to fewer post-operative complications.
