Build-to-Suit Rigid Endoscopy
All of the rigid endoscopy surgical procedures utilize small incisions (roughly the diameter of a dime) and minimize intraoperative tissue trauma and postoperative pain.
Hundreds of Biovision customers report that animals recover from rigid endoscopy surgical and diagnostic procedures much quicker and easier than from conventional open procedures. In many cases, the animals can go home the day of surgery.
A wide range of procedures including simple otoscopy, rhinoscopy, foreign body retrievals, fistula tracks, laryngeal paralysis, feeding tube placements, vaginoscopy, thoracoscopy, and more can be performed through natural orifices or through a small single incision.
