HOW DOES A LASER WORK?
We treat our patients with a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser which is the most widely used type of laser in the medical field. CO2 lasers produce an invisible beam that vaporizes the water normally found in skin and other soft tissue. The laser beam can be precisely controlled so it can remove or cut a small portion of tissue at one time while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.
WHY CHOOSE LASER SURGERY?
Less Pain - Less anesthesia can be used causing less complication because the laser seals nerve endings as it "cuts". Pain after surgery is reduced.
Less Bleeding - The laser seals the small blood vessels during surgery.
Less swelling - Tearing, crushing and bruising are obsolete with the laser, because laser energy doesn't physically come in contact with the tissue.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS FOR MY PET?
Laser reduces the risk of infection - As the laser removes diseased tissue it also kills micro organisms and bacteria that causes infection.
Precision- The laser can remove unhealthy and diseased tissue without affecting the healthy tissue surrounding it.
Quick recovery - The healing process is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort. Laser procedures heal differently than traditional surgery resulting in less trauma to your pet. This may shorten the time spent in the veterinary hospital.
ARE LASER SCALPELS NEW?
No, laser technology has been around for more than 20 years. Medical doctors have helped thousands of people with the use of laser
