Pet Minimally Invasive Procedures

Learn more about Minimally Invasive Procedures below.


Endoscopy is a technique for performing procedures through natural openings in the body using an endoscope, an instrument used to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. Unlike most other medical imaging devices, endoscopes are inserted directly into the organ. Endoscopy is useful for removing foreign bodies, examining the lining of inner organs, obtaining biopsies. Common uses of endoscopy include esophagoscopy (esophagus), bronchoscopy (airways and lungs), gastroscopy (stomach), colonoscopy (colon), and cystoscopy (bladder).
