Laser Surgery

In Vermilion, we have used a Laser for surgery for several years now. This is a very new and exciting technology which allows us to make incisions without the use of a scalpel and which are bloodless. The laser is a focused stream of energy which vaporizes tissue as it passes and can be very highly controlled by the operator, down to the point of vaporizing one cell layer at a time. We have used this in routine surgeries, especially declaws, lump removals, and other resections. It is particularly useful (ok, it ROCKS) for removing warts in older dogs! Check out the following for more information www.aesculight.com/ The main advantages are hemorrhage control, sealing of nerves and sealing of lymphatics, thus reducing bruising, pain, and swelling.
