Laser Surgery

Lasers have been successfully used in human medicine for over 30 years. Now your pet can benefit from this cutting edge technology. Laser surgery is an exciting new option for safer, more comfortable care. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel and provide a better alternative to traditional surgery. Laser surgery offers the benefit of less bleeding during surgical procedures, and less pain and swelling post-operatively. As a result, pets recover more comfortably, and return to normal activity more quickly.
