Surgical Laser

The Surgical Laser is an advanced surgical tool that greatly reduces the swelling associated with traditional surgery. The laser is a beam of high intensity light that vaporizes and cuts tissue; Using a laser for the surgery drastically reduces pain and discomfort, making laser surgery a favorable method for many veterinary surgical procedures. The decrease in pain and bleeding reduces the chances for post-operative infections and discomfort, meaning your pet can return home and have a faster recovery.

How Does It Work?

Laser surgery can be used to make a unique bloodless incision, as well as to remove unhealthy tissue such as tumors, without excessive loss of blood typical of conventional scalpel based surgery.

The laser produces a powerful beam of light that seals small blood vessels and nerve endings as it cuts so your pet is more comfortable after surgery. Additionally, the laser beam kills any bacteria in its path, reducing the chances of swelling and infection.

Surgical Protocols

We carefully examine all of our patients before the operation to make sure they are healthy enough for anesthesia. We recommend pre-surgical blood work to determine if it is safe to administer anesthesia. Our veterinarians also use the test results to screen for any pre-existing conditions that may have an impact on the surgery and to develop a pain management plan tailored to your pet.
