Laser Surgery

We provide many surgical services with laser surgery at our hospital including routine spay, neuters, and soft-tissue surgeries. Common orthopedic surgeries can be done at our hospital by a board certified veterinary surgeon.

The Benefits of Laser Surgery

  • Minimized Bleeding: As it cuts, the laser beam seals small blood vessels
    • Better visualization of the surgical site allows the veterinarian to;
    • Cut more precisely
    • Some procedures do not require sutures
    • Shorten procedure time therefore reducing the risks of anesthesia
    • Better esthetic result
  • Less Pain: The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings and lymphatics, resulting in less post-operative swelling and pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery
  • Reduced risk of infection- It efficiently destroys bacteria in its path (sanitizing effect).
    • CO2 laser surgery is performed in a non-contact mode – the laser tip does not touch the target tissue during surgery, which minimizes risk of infection even more
  • Faster recovery time: Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, pain and swelling, less time under anesthesia
    • Often allows the patient a speedy recovery after the surgery and pets walk, eat, drink, or play much sooner than after conventional scalpel surgery.
  • Advanced accessories mean better results
    • Flexible fiber waveguide,
    • Lightweight ergonomic hand-pieces, the freedom of movement and no arm/hand fatigue for the veterinarian during operation also ensures more precise and efficient surgery and better clinical outcome
