Not only has laser surgery become very common in human medicine, it has become a recognizable surgical method in veterinary medicine as well. The surgical laser is often used for standard spay and neuter surgeries, declaw surgeries in cats, oral surgeries and wart or lump removals. Because of its exceptional efficiency and precision, the surgical laser provides many benefits to both the patient and surgeon. Here at Abbotsford Animal Hospital we have been utilizing laser surgery as an effective tool for over 15 years.
There are many benefits of the surgical laser beam. It sears blood vessels which creates a reduction in bleeding and also allows greater visibility to the surgeon during the procedure. The laser also seals the nerve endings resulting in less postoperative swelling and decreased postoperative pain permitting a more comfortable recovery. Another valuable trait of the laser is it greatly reduces the risk of infection as it creates a sterilizing effect, killing bacteria in the surgical site.
With all of these effective and beneficial qualities of the laser, patients often have a smoother and far quicker recovery.
