AccuVet Laser Surgery is an exciting new option for veterinary practices, allowing vets to provide safer and more comfortable treatment for their patients.
Lasers have been successfully used on humans for over 30 years. This knowledge gained in human medicine is beneficial for your pets. Your pet's health is as important to us as it is to you. Hundreds of veterinarians are offering laser surgery as an exciting new option for safer, more comfortable treatment. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery.
Our laser. Cauterizes nerve endings and blood vessels as it cuts equaling less pain and swelling. We always recommend using the laser whenever possible.
Why laser surgery?
The laser seals nerve endings as it "cuts". As a result, your pet will experience less pain and be more comfortable post-op.
The Laser seals small blood vessels during surgery. This speeds many procedures, reducing the time your pet needs to be under anesthesia, which further reduces possible complications.
Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise tissue because the only thing that touches your pet is an invisible beam of light.
What does this mean for my pet?
Reduced risk of infection
As the laser removes diseased tissue, it seals the skin and reduces the amount of bacteria present.
The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue.
Quick return to normal activities
Healing is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort and a better course of healing.
