What is Laparoscopic Surgery?

Benefits of minimally invasive technique:

Laparoscopic surgery or “lap-surgery” utilizes the advantage of modern technology to perform traditionally invasive surgeries through tiny ports rather than making a large incision. Common procedures such as an ovariohysterectomy (spay) or liver biopsies can now be performed through three small openings, each the width of a pencil. This advanced technique allows the talented veterinarians at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt to offer quicker recovery times, less trauma, and less post-surgical pain for your pet, should he or she need surgery (see study). We want your pet to get back to being part of the family as quickly as possible! This is one of the many ways that The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt has adapted to become the premier veterinary hospital in the Greensboro/Summerfield area.

Testimonials

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
