Keyhole surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique. Cameras and other small instruments are used perform a wide range of procedures. Keyhole surgery is an advanced technique with many advantages and lower risks.

What are the benefits of keyhole surgery?

Keyhole surgery is minimally invasive with lower risks and many advantages. These include:

  • smaller wounds
  • less chance of infections
  • reduced post-operative pain
  • faster recovery
  • fewer complications

When do we use keyhole surgery?

At Medivet, we offer keyhole surgery as an option when neutering your female pet. This is often the best choice as smaller incisions and fewer stitches mean that your pet should be back on her feet as soon as possible, experiencing less disruption and discomfort.

Keyhole surgery can also be used in a number of other surgeries and in cancer and tumour biopsies. Speak to your vet about whether keyhole surgery could be a suitable option for your pet.

Please contact your local Medivet practice to find out if they offer keyhole surgery.
