Minimally invasive surgery

Using a camera during laparoscopic surgery allows to perform surgical operations, even very complex ones, without making long incisions in the abdominal wall.
The vision of the operating field is obtained by insufflating gas into the abdomen, the use of optical tools and the insertion of specific surgical instruments in a variable number of areas through 6 or 11-mm incisions of the abdominal wall, obtaining a complete and detailed view on high-resolution monitors.

Gentle and minimally invasive
with less chance of infection


Laparoscopic surgery has many advantages in both diagnostic and therapeutic fields:

  • Minimal invasiveness
  • Well controlled postoperative pain
  • Quick recovery of authonomy
  • Quick recovery of bowel function
  • Quick recovery of motor functions
  • Absence of undesired effects on the immune system linked to the trauma of open surgery
  • Shorter hospital stay with lower costs
  • Best aesthetic result
  • Significant reduction in post-laparotomy complications (wound infections and haematomas, laparocele and bowel adhesions)

The optical devices commonly used in surgery provide a more detailed and precise magnification of anatomical structures, enabling surgeons to perform difficult operations with greater accuracy.

The extensive collection of case histories has enabled us to quickly gain technical knowledge and procedural safety. This confirms that it can be applied to various abdominal surgeries, allowing for effective and safe treatment of diseases affecting the liver, spleen, pancreas, stomach, intestines, kidney, adrenal system, male and female genital apparatus, and urinary tract.

The surgical team collaborates with important scientific societies (Società Italiana di Chirurgia Veterinaria, Società Italiana di Chirurgia Minivasiva Veterinaria, Veterinary Endoscopy Society) and carries out periodic training in other Veterinary Hospitals.

Minimally invasive surgery is used for:

  • sterilisation of female dogs (laparoscopic ovariectomy and laparoscopic-assisted ovarian hysterectomy, treatment of ovarian remnant syndrome)
  • sterilisation of male dogs with undescended testicles
  • gastric and bowel surgery (gastrotomy, enterotomy, intestinal resection and anastomosis, full thickness biopsy, prophylactic gastropexy)
  • spleen surgery
  • pancreas surgery
  • liver and biliary system diseases (cholecystocystocentesis, acute cholecyst, cholecystectomy)
  • find and remove sentinel lymph nodes
  • minimally invasive treatment of bladder and ureteral stones
  • diagnostic laparoscopy (liver, kidneys, pancreas biopsy)


Although it has many advantages, not all patients are suitable for laparoscopy surgery. Hence, a preventive consultation with a veterinary surgeon is necessary. There is a distinction between laparoscopic procedures and laparoscopic-assisted procedures. Laparoscopic procedures involve surgery inside the abdominal cavity, while laparoscopic-assisted procedures have minimally invasive access to the abdominal cavity, but the surgery is performed partly externally.
