LASER SURGERY

What Is Laser Surgery?

Interaction of laser light with tissue provides a fundamentally different approach to surgery. In laser surgery, a highly focused laser beam can efficiently ablate (either vaporize or chip away) the living tissue. At the same time, it seals (welds) capillaries, small blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings, with significant benefits to both patient and surgeons.

What Are The Benefits?

Less Bleeding
As it cuts, the laser seals small blood vessels. This drastic reduction in bleeding enables a number of new surgical procedures that are not practical with conventional scalpel.
Less Pain
The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings and lymphatics, resulting in less edema and pain.
Reduces Infection
This is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam, It efficiently kills bacteria in its path, producing a sterilizing effect.
Quicker Recovery
Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, less pain and less swelling often allow the patient a far quicker recovery time after surgery.

The laser is a highly versatile instrument and can be used in many areas of the body. It can be used on the nose, mouth and throat for Brachiocephalic Syndrome for stenotic nares, soft palate resection and tonsillectomys. It is used in the ear and around the eyes for diatiachiasis and entropion, and all over the body to remove small masses, warts, and tumors. It is especially beneficial on the the reproductive tract such as ovariohysterectomies and castrations, and around the anus to remove tumors and anal glands where tissue visualization and hemmorage control is especially important.

The laser is used on the bladder and veterinary surgeons are now beginning to use it on the intestines and almost anywhere there is a need to decrease bleeding and reduce patient discomfort.

One of the most common surgical procedures is in declawing cats where pain is kept to a minimum and the need for a traditional tourniquet to control bleeding is of concern..

REDUCTION OF SURGERY TIME:
The hemostatic effect of the laser beam and the improved visibility of the surgical field often reduce the duration of surgery.
