We are pleased to offer our clients state-of-the-art Laser Surgery. This surgical tool is revolutionizing the way surgery is performed. Laser technology reduces the trauma to your pet and improves recovery.
The Laser is a device that generates an intense beam of light at a specific wavelength. It can be precisely controlled allowing only a thin layer of tissue to be removed, leaving the surrounding area unaffected. There are several advantages to carbon dioxide Laser surgery.
1. Pain Reduction
The Laser seals nerve endings as it "cuts." This results in decreased pain for our special friends.
2. Swelling Reduction
Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise tissue because the only thing that touches your pet is an invisible beam of light.
3. Control of Infection
The Laser beam operates at a temperature of over 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Essentially bacteria are vaporized by contact with the laser beam. This makes it highly effective at killing bacteria that have potential to cause an infection. This is particularly important in areas where it is difficult to prevent bacteria from contaminating the surgical site.
