Meet our 500th Laparoscopic spay - Mia

Mia 1We performed our five hundredth laparoscopic [keyhole] spay on 16th May 2017.  Five hundred happy dogs and a celebratory cake coming our way.  Mia's spay was typical of the procedure that we now perform and this photo was taken about half an hour after her anaesthetic.  What a beautiful dog!

Its been a bit of a journey, starting in 2011 with a years post graduate training, including practical sessions and lectures concluding with practical assessments and written examinations.  Patrick became a certified veterinary endosurgeon and endoscopist in 2012.  To enable the full range of minimally invasive techniques to be accessed, Springwell veterinary surgery bought a whole new Karl Storz endosurgical suite at this time. Patrick also holds a post graduate certificate in small animal surgery which gives us the options to perform most types of surgery in the kindest way that we can.
