Laser surgery can be extremely beneficial over traditional surgery and allows many common operations to be preformed faster, more safely, and with significantly decreased recovery time.
- Less Pain – The laser seals nerve endings throughout the procedure decreasing the amount of pain your pet feels after the surgery.
- Less Bleeding – The laser seals small blood vessels resulting in less bleeding and quicker operations. Your pet is under anesthetics for a shorter amount of time.
- Less Swelling – With laser technology only light comes into contact with the tissue, causing minimal swelling.
- Extreme Precision – The laser enables your pet’s surgeon to only affect or remove the targeted tissue, leaving healthy surrounding tissue untouched.
- Reduced Risk of Infection – The high heat of laser energy kills bacteria and micro-organisms during the operation, reducing the chance of infection.
- Quicker Recovery – For all of the above reasons your pet is likely to feel less discomfort after surgery and return home to normal activities sooner.
