Laser surgery is commonly used in human surgery, its beneficial effects have been proven and in our hospital animals benefit from this technology.
The laser technique is based on using an intense beam of light, channeled with extreme precision that can vaporize tissue water, cutting very small quantities of material at a time. The laser energy seals nerve endings and blood vessels, resulting in less bleeding, less pain and less trauma to the adjacent tissue in comparison to a traditional incision blade. Finally, the high temperature generated by the jet destroys bacteria that could end up at the incision site, which greatly reduces the risk of infection.
The laser technique is used for several surgeries, including declawing cats, sterilization of males and females, removal of nodules or skin and mouth masses, correcting entropions, removal of the anal glands, sailing resection of the palate and many other surgeries.
The reduced time of anesthesia, significant decrease in recovery time and the reduced post-surgical complications makes this technique greatly encouraged by our staff.
