EndoDiagnostic + Surgical Suite (EDSS)
The laparoscopic modality uses small incisions (roughly the diameter of a dime) and electrocautery, minimizing intraoperative tissue trauma and postoperative pain.
Hundreds of Biovision customers report that animals recover from laparoscopic procedures much more quickly and easily than from conventional procedures. In many cases, the animals can go home the day of surgery.
Procedures ranging from spays and cryptorchids to gastropexies, liver biopsies, and abdominal exploratories can be performed through a single port.
