Laparoscopic Surgery

Laparoscopic machine.

Minimally Invasive Surgeries, (MIS).
laparoscopic surgery, uses the latest technology. When performing MIS, the surgeon creates small, dime-sized incisions that allow the use of a miniature camera, or laparoscope, and specialized instruments to perform the procedure, so there is no need for a large, conventional incision. Smaller incisions mean less pain for our patients, along with a faster recovery.
Here's Dr. Burns in action:

Two small dime sized incisions.

This was a liver biopsy surgery. Instead of going in through a larger incision, this was the better and least painful choice.

Gone fishing!!

Crazy but true!!!!

I'm hooked!!!!

Hopefully he won't do that again.....So cute!

Watch The Road!!!!

We all know that it's summer time on the Cape. Everyone needs to get somewhere and sometimes things happen. Animals hit by cars, are a common occurrence this time a year. Here at Veterinary Associates we see a lot of animals that are unfortunately victims of motor vehicle accidents.

We have recently treated a cat which was hit by a car. Although his outer appearance looked alright with one or two little scratches, the x-rays tell a different story!

This is a very painful break. Hopefully with surgery and rest the kitty will be back on his feet again and feeling better.
So this summer remember watch the road and drive with caution, let's all have a safe and healthy summer!
