At Carson veterinary Clinic we perform a myriad of soft tissue and orthopedic suregries. They range from spaying and neutering to fracture repairs and very difficult intestinal and soft tissue surgeries.
One of the things thats sets us apart is our commitment to making the procedure as safe and painless as possible! To make this possible we use state of the art anesthetic monitoring equipment and the absolute BEST surgical laser on the market today.
What is laser surgery?
Interaction of laser light with tissue provides a fundamentally different approach to surgery. In laser surgery, a highly focused laser beam can efficiently ablate (either vaporize or chip away) the living tissue. At the same time, it seals (welds) capillaries, small blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings, with significant benefits to both patients and surgeons
Laser surgery benefits for patients
Less Bleeding: As it cuts, the laser seals small blood vessels. This drastic reduction in bleeding enables a number of new surgical procedures that are not practical with conventional scalpel.
Less Pain: The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings and lymphatics, resulting in less edema and pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
Reduced risk of infection: This is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam. It efficiently kills bacteria in its path, producing a sterilizing effect.
Quicker recovery time: Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, less pain and less swelling often allow the patient a far quicker recovery after the surgery.
Less than 15% of Veterinarians in the United States use a CO2 laser for surgery. We have chosen to utilize it because we have a commitment to excellent medicine and patient care. Anything that delivers less pain and a faster recovery for your dog or cat is what we are happy to offer to you and your furry friends!!
