Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our veterinarians specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures including arthroscopy and laparoscopy



Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows the surgeon to assess and treat joints, tendon sheaths and bursae through small little portals. Arthroscopy requires specialized equipment that is used to remove chips from joints and to treat infected joints, tendon sheaths and bursae.

In most cases arthroscopy is performed in the anesthetized horse but in our clinic may also be performed in selected joints with a needle scope in the standing horse.



Laparoscopy is another minimally invasive surgical procedure that is used most commonly to remove ovaries from mares with ovarian tumors or with behavioral problems. It is also used in cryptorchid stallions to remove retained testicles.
