Laparoscopy and Endoscopy:

Minimally Invasive Surgery through tiny "key hole" incisions 

Why choose surgery through a tiny "keyhole" incision?

1.  Minimal surgical pain with a tiny incision

2.  Safety for Patients is increased by:

  • reducing anesthesia time

  • reducing surgical recovery time

  • reduces bleeding

  • reduces post-op complications including pain-related problems, infection rates, and tissue trauma

​3.  Excellent ability to visualize structures

4.  Surgical time is greatly reduced, particularly for biopsies of liver, kidney, spleen, and pancreas

Alpine Animal Clinic brings you the very best in surgical care with use of Laparoscopy and Endoscopy surgical capabilities.  Your four-legged family can now have the same state-of-the-art surgery used in many human surgeries, allowing us to diagnose and correct problems with minimally invasive procedures!


Using a tiny camera inserted through a very small incision allows the surgeon to easily see internal organs without a large surgical incision.  This benefits the patient a great deal by causing much less surgical pain, reducing the amount of healing needed after surgery, and greatly reduces post-operative risk of complications.
