What is Laser Surgery?

In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery. Laser surgery utilizes a CO2 laser which produces an invisible beam of light that vaporizes the water normally found in the skin and other soft tissue. Because the veterinarian can precisely control the laser, only a thin layer of tissue is removed leaving the surrounding areas unaffected. Laser surgery cauterizes (stops bleeding) as it cuts, so there is less trauma to the tissue resulting in less pain, bleeding, swelling and a quicker recovery.
