When your pet undergoes surgery, you may have a number of concerns. New technologies have made veterinary surgery easier and safer, to ensure better care for animals. Laser surgery offers many advantages for the treatment of pets. At Animal Clinic of Council Bluffs in Council Bluffs, IA and Glenwood Veterinary Clinic in Glenwood, IA, we provide state-of-the-art laser surgery for our patients’ needs.
Understanding Laser Surgery
The word “laser” stands for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” It involves the use of a device that generates an intense beam of light that can be used instead of a scalpel to cut through soft tissue during surgical procedures. The device was used extensively in human surgery for many years and more recently has become widely available for veterinary surgery. Laser surgery offers a number of advantages over conventional surgical methods and is now being implemented to provide better care for animals that require surgery.
Benefits of Laser Surgery
In addition to precision for incisions, laser surgery has also been found to cause less tissue trauma and less swelling post-surgery. It also results in less bleeding and faster healing. Pain from incisions is also reduced. Procedures can also be done more quickly, minimizing stress on the animal. For these reasons, laser surgery has become a popular option for many procedures. Your veterinarian in Council Bluffs and Glenwood can offer this improved method for your pet.
When Is Laser Surgery Used?
The precision of laser surgery is often used for eye, eyelid or ear surgery. It is also frequently employed for dermatological surgery, such as the removal of tumors and re-surfacing of damaged skin. It can also be used for spay and neuter surgery. Any surgery that requires precise actions by the veterinary surgeon can benefit from the carefully directed use of the laser beam.
