In addition to conventional surgery, Briarcliff is proud to be one of only a few Atlanta veterinary hospitals to offer laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic techniques dramatically reduce pain and speed up the recovery process for your pet.
Laparoscopic procedures require one or two tiny (less than one inch) incisions and result in far less tissue damage and internal bruising than traditional surgery. Smaller incisions and less tissue damage mean less pain, faster healing for your pet along with a reduced chance for post-operative complications.
Other surgeries that can be performed with the assistance of minimally invasive techniques include gastropexy to prevent bloat (GDV), abdominal organ biopsies and removal of bladder stones. There are also many other uses of this equipment such as evaluating ear and nasal diseases.
