Minimally Invasive Procedures
The Oklahoma Minimally Invasive Program (OMIP) at the Oklahoma State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital has an overarching mission of improving animal well-being by minimizing pain and discomfort associated with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. Minimally Invasive Procedures (MIPs) provide improved outcomes, reduced anesthesia times, reduced hospital stays and feasible treatment options for conditions that previously had none.
Types of Minimally Invasive Procedures
Interventional Endoscopy utilizes endoscopic equipment to guide diagnosis and treatment in virtually all organ
systems. Some of the common conditions treated with IE include urinary tract infections,
incontinence, kidney stones and various tumors.
Interventional Radiology employs various advanced imaging modalities such as CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and ultrasound to guide diagnosis and treatment of conditions virtually anywhere within the body.
The OSU Veterinary Hospital is currently the only provider of High-Frequency Focused
Ultrasound to treat tumors and medically non-responsive infections in veterinary medicine.
We believe this innovative treatment will revolutionize the treatment of cancer in
Minimally Invasive Surgery includes laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, arthroscopy and minimally-invasive fracture repairs such as external fixators.
