We are currently one of only a few practices in Surrey to offer Laparoscopy. Andrew Ketteridge has been performing laparoscopic procedures for several years at Grove Lodge Veterinary Hospital and is now at Oak Barn every Monday and Wednesday. We are very excited about the greatly improved scope of surgical procedures it means we can offer and the benefits it brings to your pets.
Why is Laparoscopy better for my pet?
- Less post-operative pain (65% less in a recent study)
- Smaller incisions – no external sutures or lampshade collars required!
- Less tissue handling
- Quicker healing and recovery times
- Reduced infection risk
- Reduced blood loss
