Orchard House Vets in Hexham are an award winning vets with over 25 years experience. We are one of very few practices in the North East to offer Laparoscopic surgery, keyhole spays and Laparoscopic procedures. We accept patients from Newcastle upon tyne to Carlisle, everywhere in between and even further afield.
What is Laparoscopic Surgery?
Keyhole surgery uses specialist instruments and endoscopes (cameras) to perform surgeries though small incisions in the abdomen. Large incisions can be avoided during laparoscopy because the surgeon uses an instrument called a laparoscope. Minimally invasive surgeries have largely replaced traditional 'open' surgeries and this is especially true with Laparoscopic spays. The marked benefits it offers, includes:
- Reduced post-operative pain and discomfort
- Faster return to normal activity levels - especially useful for active or working dogs
- Smaller surgical wounds with a decreased risk of wound infections
- Better visibility during surgery Decreased surgical time

Keyhole surgery has benefitted my dog greatly. She recovered much quicker and appeared to be in a lot less pain than I have seen other dogs show in the past. Highly recommend Orchard House Vets and keyhole spays.

We were referred to Orchard House Vets by a vets in Prudhoe, Northumberland for a laparoscopic spay. From the moment we walked through the door we felt at ease and made to feel very welcome. Outstanding service and very happy with how Mabel has recovered. Thanks Orchard!
