An emerging surgical modality, less invasive laparoscopic spays are growing in popularity. More and more owners are looking for lap spays despite the higher cost of the procedure versus a traditional spay.
As for arthroscopy, set-up costs are high. But if you already have a light source and camera for arthroscopy or endoscopy these are usually fine for laparoscopy as well.
In addition you will need scopes, trochars, hand instruments and a ligating device such as the Ligamax 5 clip applier or a power system such as the Gen11 with a suitable handpiece. Alternatively it’s possible to use a good bipolar electro-surgery unit with bipolar grasping and cutting forceps.
