LASER SURGERY--what's all the hype?!

Lasers have been successfully used in human medicine for over 30 years. At Morris Animal Hospital, your pet benefits from this cutting edge technology!

Why laser surgery?

  • Less Pain - The laser seals nerve endings as it "cuts." As a result, your pet will experience less pain and be more comfortable after surgery.

  • Less Bleeding - The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery. This also helps reduce the time your pet needs to be under anesthesia, which reduces complications.

  • Less Swelling - Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise tissue because the only thing that touches your pet is an invisible beam of light.

What does this mean for my pet?

  • Reduced risk of infection - As the laser removes diseased tissue, it seals the skin and reduces the amount of bacteria present.

  • Greater precision - The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue.

  • Quicker return to normal activities - Healing is rapid and there is less post-operative discomfort.
