Here at Sunny Hills Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to offer laser surgery.
Did you know
…laser surgery uses a beam of a certain wavelength of light to cut tissue instead of using a scalpel blade.
Because our surgeons are highly skilled, they can control the amount of light used, which gives them extreme surgical precision.
Laser Surgery Benefits
- Less pain after surgery. There is less pain because the laser seals the nerve endings as it cuts, decreasing the pain impulses.
- Less bleeding during surgery, which means fewer complications. There is less bleeding because we also cauterize the ends as we cut with the laser.
- Risk of infection is reduced when a laser is used instead of a scalpel. There is less infection because the laser beam heats up the tissues and destroys any bacteria that may be present.
- Able to remove some tumors with just local anesthesia instead of having to use general anesthesia. This reduces the recovery time needed by your pet.
We can use a laser during almost any soft-tissue surgery that we perform. We use them when we do routine surgeries like spays and neuters, and we can also use lasers for tumor removals, eyelid surgeries, and other surgeries. Laser surgery allows us to do complex surgeries that otherwise might need to be referred to specialists.
Our surgeons are highly skilled at laser surgery, offering only the most up-to-date procedures for our patients. It is our goal to ensure that our patients thrive after surgery with minimal post-operative complications.
