Minimally invasive surgery
Arthroscopic, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approaches to treat surgical diseases have been associated with: shorter hospital stays, less post-operative pain, less morbidity, quicker recovery times and fewer complications than more traditional techniques. CVSS is now offering a range of minimally invasive procedures to our clients. Commonly performed techniques include:
Laparoscopy: liver biopsies, gastropexies, ovariectomies or ovariohysterectomies, feeding tube placement, renal biopsies and cystotomies
Thoracoscopy: pericardial windows, lung biopsies, lymph node biopsies and thoracic duct ligation.
Arthroscopy: the shoulder for OCD or biceps tendonitis, the elbow for fragmented medial coronoid processes, united anconeal processes and OCD and the stifle for meniscal or cruciate disease.
Please call our Annapolis office to discuss the possibility of laparoscopy or thoracoscopy and either our Towson or Annapolis office for arthroscopy for your patients.
Negative pressure wound therapy
Applying continuous, sealed suction to a wound surface has been shown to decrease wound edema and increase blood flow to the area. These effects accelerate granulation tissue formation and increase the rate of bacterial clearance, allowing wounds to be closed early and reducing the need for costly bandage changes.
We have managed many complicated wounds with negative pressure wound therapy and are happy to be able to offer this service to our clients.
Please call our office with any questions regarding this therapy.
