Overground dynamic endoscopy
In some cases, evaluation of the larynx and pharynx whilst the horse is exercising is necessary in order to make a diagnosis.
Endoscopic surgery of the abdomen and thorax can be very useful in horses for a variety of different problems. It allows visualisation and treatment of parts of the abdomen (laparoscopy) and thorax (thoracoscopy) which can be difficult to reach using other forms of surgery and has the significant advantages of being able to be performed with the horse standing and with minimal incisions.
Laser surgery provides a safe, reliable and minimally invasive surgical method for the treatment of specific equine upper respiratory tract conditions, as well as lesions affecting other inaccessible parts of the body such as uterine cysts and urethral strictures.
Upper respiratory surgery
Our soft tissue surgery team offers a wide range of procedures involving diagnosis, management and treatment of upper respiratory tract disorders including sinus surgery, laryngeal and palate surgery which may be performed using laser surgical treatments.
