Minimally Invasive Surgery

Recent innovations in veterinary and minimally invasive surgical technology are changing the face of veterinary soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. New minimally invasive surgical approaches have been developed to compliment or replace traditional techniques. In many cases, quicker recovery time and superior visualization have also been demonstrated with minimally invasive techniques.
