Laparoscopic Surgery

Dr. Hailey is acclaimed as one of the founders of veterinary laparoscopic surgery and is a co-developer in the single-port lap spay.  He has traveled across the country and around the world teaching laparoscopy at universities and specialty clinics.  Laparoscopy allows the surgeon to view inside the animal with a small (less than ¾ of an inch) incision, allowing biopsies and surgical procedures to be performed with less pain and trauma to the patient.  Pictures can also be taken, reviewed and shown to the owner.

Devitt, Ray E. Cox DVM, Jim J. Hailey DVM; Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association Vol 227, No. 6, September 15, 2005.
