Laser technology has emerged as a breakthrough medical tool that minimizes the negative effects of surgical procedures and expedites cell repair in injured patients.
The main benefits of laser surgery are:
- Reduced bleeding
- Reduced pain
- Reduced swelling
- Faster recovery!
CO2 lasers are ideal surgical tools because of the nature of the incisions they form. The laser seals nerve endings as they are cut, significantly reducing pain following the operation. Blood vessels within the soft tissue are similarly sealed, instantly stopping blood loss, which effectively eliminates trauma to the patient and provides the surgeon with an uninhibited view during the operation.
At Animal Medical Hospital, we offer laser surgery for such common procedures as:
- Feline declaws
- Mass removals
Our surgeons will discuss with you the benefits of laser surgery for your pet and will answer any questions you may have.
