Laser surgery uses a beam of a certain wavelength of light to cut tissue instead of using a scalpel blade. Because our surgeons are highly skilled, they can control the amount of light used, which gives them extreme surgical precision.
Why Laser Surgery?
Many owners wonder why laser surgery is a good idea. There are many benefits. Patients suffer from less pain after surgery. There is less bleeding during surgery, which means fewer complications. The risk of infection is reduced when a laser is used instead of a scalpel.
It is our goal to eliminate as much pain as possible and to give these pets a better quality of life.
There is less pain with laser surgery because the laser seals the nerve endings as it cuts, decreasing the pain impulses. By performing this type of surgery, we are able to remove some tumors with just local anesthesia instead of having to use general anesthesia.
We can also use a laser during almost any soft-tissue surgery that we perform. We use them when we do routine surgeries like spays and neuters, and we can also use lasers for tumor removals, eyelid surgeries, and other surgeries.
Our surgeons are highly skilled at laser surgery, offering only the most up-to-date procedures for our patients. It is our goal to ensure that our patients thrive after surgery with minimal post-operative complications.
Pain is a terrible thing. Society Hill Veterinary Hospital wants to alleviate as much pain and discomfort for our patients as possible. To bring you the highest quality care, we are dedicated to providing top notch pain management.
When our pets are in pain, so are we. It is an awful feeling to know that your special friend is hurting, especially when there isn’t anything you can do to help them. It is our goal to eliminate as much pain as possible and to give these pets a better quality of life.
We anticipate and plan for all of our procedures with the potential for future pain. In addition, we work with pet owners to educate them on how to recognize signs of pain in your pet.
We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process run smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of your pet’s surgical procedures.
