Minimally Invasive Procedures
At Cape Veterinary Clinic, our utmost priority is to ensure your pet’s swift recovery and return to their optimal well-being after surgery. One key factor contributing to this is the provision of minimally invasive procedures. These involve performing surgeries with minimal pain, limited tissue trauma, and faster recovery times compared to traditional methods. We are dedicated to employing advanced techniques that prioritize your pet’s comfort and expedite their healing process.
At CVC, we offer the following minimally invasive procedures when your pet needs
Rhinoscopy involves placing a camera into the nasal passages to assess for causes of bleeding, nasal discharge such as pus or clear fluid and difficulty breathing.
Tracheoscopy involves placing a camera into the windpipe to assess for causes of difficult breathing and coughing.
Placement of a camera into the ear canal to assess for persistent ear infections, bleeding and swelling.
Placement of a camera into the abdominal cavity to assess organs seen as abnormal on an ultrasound or xray. Biopsies can be collected, stomach tacking can be performed, organs can be removed such as the ovaries (spay) or retained testes (neuter), and many other options are possible.
Cystoscopy is placement of a camera into the urethra and bladder to assess for causes of difficult urination, bleeding, and continuous urine dribbling. Stones may be removed.
Arthroscopy (shoulder, elbow, knee, etc…)
Placement of a camera and small tools to visualize, examine, and treat issues within a joint.
