As part of our commitment to quality care, we are pleased to offer laser surgery as a safe and comfortable treatment. We feel that laser surgery provides the best possible care for your pet. Laser surgery involves utilizing a carbon dioxide laser, which produces an invisible beam of light that can remove a precise layer of tissue at one time.
The benefits of laser surgery are:
Less Pain – The laser seals nerve endings as it cuts. Your pet will be more comfortable after surgery as they will experience less pain and discomfort.
Less Bleeding – The laser seals small blood vessels during the surgery, greatly reducing blood loss.
Less Swelling – The laser energy does not crush, tear, or bruise the tissue
because there is no physical contact with the tissue. Therefore the swelling of postoperative incisions is reduced.
Less Infection – The carbon dioxide laser energy acts as an antimicrobial/antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures which effectively eliminate microorganisms. Therefore, reducing the risk of infection.
All of the above help promote rapid healing which allows for a quick return to normal activities for your pet.
