Crown Vets are very pleased to be able to offer this advanced Technology in animals. Keyhole surgery uses cleverly engineered cameras and instruments to preform operations through tiny incisions and can replace more traditional operations, which require larger wounds. Keyhole surgery is less painful, produces a quicker recovery with fewer stitches and is generally safer. The most common use for keyhole surgery is neutering of female dogs, commonly called a "bitch spay" but we can also use the equipment to do other operations in the abdomen, chest and even inside the joints.
Traditional spays involve an incision through which the uterus and ovaries are removed. This procedure is known as a ovariohysterectomy and requires a large incision to safely identify and visualise all the important structures. Using the keyhole technique allows all the structures to be visualised through two 5mm incisions, which are so small they very often don't need skin sutures! In this operation only the ovaries are removed (ovariectomy) but both operations have exactly the same benefits.
