Surgical and Diagnostic Training

Biovision Veterinary Endoscopy’s Surgical and Diagnostic Training Program

Biovision is the only veterinary endoscopy company that provides extensive hands-on surgical training with the purchase of any of its surgical & diagnostic suite packages. Our experienced surgeons will instruct you to perform various minimally invasive surgical & diagnostic procedures.

Biovision’s training program focuses on our pioneering single port laparoscopic surgical and diagnostic approach. This enables a single veterinarian to perform minimally invasive surgical and diagnostic procedures without the assistance of another veterinarian. Some procedures may require multiple ports, in these cases, our surgeons will teach you how to place additional trocars for multiple port access.

To date, every veterinarian who has completed Biovision’s endoscopic training program has attained the necessary skill and confidence to perform a laparoscopic surgical or diagnostic procedure on their own.

Our focus is not only for the veterinarian to incorporate minimally invasive surgical and diagnostic procedures into their practice, but also to enable them to market these new procedures to their clients. Our surgeons will assist you on how to educate and promote these procedures to your clients.

During the Instruction, Veterinarians will get Hands-On Training:

  • Place a trocar
  • Manipulate instruments inside the abdomen
  • Use bipolar cautery
  • Use the video/visualization tower equipment
  • Use CO2 insufflation
  • Use our proprietary Tippy Table for patient positioning to utilize gravity as a retractor
  • Use transabdominal procedures for fixation
  • Use the video-otoscope for examination

These skills will enable veterinarians to perform the most common everyday surgical and diagnostic procedures endoscopically, such as:

  • Spay
  • Cryptorchid neuter
  • Liver biopsy
  • Prophylactic gastropexy
  • Cystoscopy
  • Rhinoscopy
  • Otoscopy
  • Thoracoscopy*
  • Arthrocoscopy*

* Advanced training is required to gain proficiency in these procedures.
"At Biovision our goal is to provide veterinarians with the surgical training and experience to enable them to continue learning on their own with minimum risk to their patients and maximum benefit to their practice. Our surgeons and will be at your disposal for any questions."

John K Small, President

Although this video was shot in 2012, everything still holds true about why vets would be well served to explore learning single-port laparoscopy and incorporating the laparoscopic modality into their practices. Dr. Raymond Cox, of the Center for the Advancement of Rigid Endoscopy, introduces veterinarians to techniques necessary for incorporating rigid endoscopy into their everyday.

Drs. Cox and Kuschel of Biovision partner, the Center for the Advancement of Rigid Endoscopy (C.A.R.E.), share their experience and perspective gained from more than a decade of performing and teaching laparoscopic surgical techniques. They also discuss the unique advantages to participating in their "Practical Single-Port Laparoscopy for the General Practitioner" continuing education course.

Hear directly from veterinarians who went through additional training on laparoscopic procedures at the Center for the Advancement of Rigid Endcoscopy and their plans for incorporating laparoscopy/rigid endoscopy into their practices.
