Our surgical laser replaces a scalpel blade anytime cutting of tissue is required. As the laser cuts, it simultaneously seals small blood vessels and nerve endings.
The advantages of laser include:
- Less post-operative swelling
- Less post-operative bleeding
- Less post-operative pain
This option is available with almost any surgical procedure, but is most often used with spays, neuters, growth removals, and especially declawing cats. In fact using the laser for a cat declaw results in such a dramatic improvement in patient comfort compared to older methods, it is the only way we will perform them at our hospital.
