-When performing a laparoscopic spay, the procedure is done through 1 tiny incision in the abdomen, typically 3/16” in length. The procedure is performed with magnified views of the organs allowing for greater precision.
-A recent study concluded laparoscopic spays caused 65% less post-operative pain than a traditional open surgical spay. In a traditional spay a 2” to 3” or larger incision is made in the abdomen throughout which the ovarian ligament is blindly torn from the abdominal wall resulting in bruising and postoperative pain. Traditional spays require significant tension on the ovaries and uterus which may cause trauma and bleeding. During laparoscopic spays the ovarian ligament is carefully cut and cauterized, rather than torn, and the incision is much smaller resulting in less post operative pain and faster recovery times.
-Laparoscopy allows for better visualization of abdominal organs.
-In larger breed dogs gastropexy can be performed at the time of spay.
-Laparoscopy is also a common tool for taking biopsies of the liver, kidney and pancreas.
