- Less Pain - Laser energy seals nerve endings as it moves through tissue. Your pet feels less pain post-operatively.
- Less Bleeding - The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery which allows your veterinarian to perform surgeries with extraordinary precision. This also speeds some procedures reducing the need for anesthesia.
- Less Swelling - Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise because only a beam of intense light contacts the tissue, resulting in less postoperative swelling and improved postoperative comfort.
What Does This Mean for My Pet?
- Reduced risk of infection - the laser sterilizes as it removes diseased tissue, killing bacteria that cause infection.
- Precision - The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue.
- Quick return to normal activities - Recovery is rapid and there is less postoperative discomfort.
A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of light at a specific wavelength.
The way a particular laser works is determined by the specific wavelength of light it produces. For example, the most commonly used surgical laser is a CO2 laser which produces an invisible beam of light that vaporizes the water normally found in the skin and other soft tissue.
Because your veterinarian can precisely control the laser, only a thin layer of tissue is removed, leaving the surrounding areas unaffected. For More Information Please check with your veterinarian to see if Laser Surgery is a good choice for your pet’s procedure.
