Minimally Invasive Pet Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) involves surgery performed by entering a joint or body cavity through small port incisions. This results in minimal damage to tissues and consequently lower operative trauma for the patient. Shorter hospitalization times, lower post-operative complication rates, lower expense, faster recovery and an earlier return of function are just a few of the benefits of (MIS) techniques. Virginia Veterinary Specialists offers many arthroscopic (joint), laparoscopic (abdominal), and thoracoscopic (chest) procedures for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
