Englehart Animal Hospital is proud to offer the use of a laser as an option for your pets routine surgical needs. Laser surgery is recognized in veterinary medicine for its benefits to the patient. There are several types of lasers available.
There are many clinical benefits to using a laser for surgery.
1. Reduced Pain
The CO2 laser beam seals nerved endings as it cuts through tissue. This reduces the amount of pain the patient feels during and after surgery.
2. Reduced Bleeding
The CO2 laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it cuts.
3. Reduced Swelling
There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical regions, eliminating the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods.
4. Reduced Infection
Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively eliminating microorganisms
The beam direction and power can be controlled precisely to remove thin layers of tissue and produce minimal side effects on the surrounding health tissue.
6. Quicker Recovery
Less bleeding and swelling lead to a quicker recovery
