Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

The surgical team at CVSS performs minimally invasive surgery for many surgical procedures.  Minimally Invasive Surgery utilizes specialized surgical equipment to operate on your pet. Our surgeons make small incisions and use cameras and instruments to perform the surgery.  Using minimally invasive surgery means most pets will have less post-operative pain when compared to traditional surgery.  Hospitalization and recovery times are typically shorter.
