Minimally Invasive Surgery (Endoscopy)


"Band-aid surgery" -- that's what the human medical field calls endoscopy, because the incisions are so tiny and because there is little discomfort.

We at Mountainside Veterinary Hospital feel the same type of surgery should be available to our patients.  After all, they are valued members of your family too.

We now offer endoscopy (minimally invasive surgery) for selected cases.

Endoscopy involves making a very small incision (1/2 inch) and inserting a telescopic camera.  The camera magnifies and projects its view to a TV monitor (like in your living room).  With our endoscope, we can quickly and efficiently "take a look" at a problem area and decide what needs to be done.  This technology has proven very useful in liver, kidney, bladder, lung, and nasal disorders.

Safer surgery, tiny incisions, and minimal discomfort make this a dramatic improvement over standard surgery techniques.

We are pleased to be able to offer this option to our clients and their animal friends.
