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.
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.
There is less pain because the laser seals the nerve endings as it cuts, decreasing the pain impulses. By performing laser surgery, we are able to remove some tumors with just local anesthesia instead of having to use general anesthesia.
There is less bleeding because we also cauterize the ends as we cut with the laser. There is less infection because the laser beam heats up the tissues and destroys any bacteria that may be present.
We can use a laser during almost any soft-tissue surgery that we perform. We can 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.
