Laser Surgery

What is a laser?
A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of light at a specific wavelength.

How does a laser work?
Our patients are treated with a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, the most widely used type of medical laser in the world.  CO2 lasers produce an invisible beam that vaporizes the water normally found in the skin and other soft tissue.  Because the laser beam can be precisely controlled, it removes or 'cuts' only a thin layer of tissue at one time, leaving the surrounding areas unaffected.  This level of control allows your veterinarian to be extremely precise in every laser surgical procedure.

Why laser surgery?
* Less Pain -
The laser seals nerve endings as it 'cuts' so your pet may require less anesthesia during the operation, reducing the risk of complications.  Pain after surgery is also reduced.
* Less Bleeding -
The laser seals blood vessels as it cuts, sealing capillaries that might otherwise bleed.
* Less Swelling -
Laser energy does not crush, tear, or bruise because there is no physical contact with the tissue.

What does this mean for my pet?
* Quicker recovery -
Laser procedures reduces trauma to your pet, improve healing, and may shorten time spent in the veterinary hospital.  Use of the laser helps provide a quick return to normal activities.
* Reduced risk of infection -
The laser  sterilizes as it removes diseased tissue, killing bacteria that cause infection.
* Precision -
The laser can remove unhealthy tissue without affecting or removing surrounding healthy tissue. Healing is rapid and there is less postoperative discomfort.
