In other words, MITP is used to define a wide variety of surgical and diagnostic procedures using a camera and a light source to visualize internal organs or body parts in the veterinary patient.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures (MISP)
• Laparoscopic Ovariohysterectomy (Spay)

• Laparoscopic Exploratory Surgery (retained testicles, hepatobiliary, gastrointestinal or urogenital disorders, etc)
• Arthoscopy (joints)

• Arthoscopy (joints)
• Biospy (tissue sampling)
• Rhinoscopy (nose)

Laparoscopic Gastropexy
Gastropexy consist of creating a permanent attachment of the stomach wall to the body wall. This attachment prevents the stomach from twisting (Volvulus) and causing the life threatening condition commonly referred to as Gastric Dilation and Volvulus (GDV).

The main goals of a gastropexy are:
• Prevent sudden death
• Prevent emergency open (large) abdominal surgeries
• Save money

Laparoscopic Spay
Lap Spay consists of removing the ovaries and uterus through a tiny hole. This technique is proven to be 65% less painful for your dog than a traditional spay. If done early, this will decrease the incidence of mammary cancer and eliminate the risk of pyometra (infection of the uterus), save you money and increase your pet's life expectancy for 1-3 years!
