Buh Bye BELLY BUMP, a HERNIA is no match for LASER SURGERY !
An UMBILICAL HERNIA in dog occurs due to a “defect” in the abdominal muscle layer underneath the skin.
This defect creates a hole under the skin allowing fat & other organs to “pop out”
Did you know that laser surgery is so precise that it can selectively remove only a few tissue cells at a time? At the same time, it is powerful enough to de-bulk entire tumors. It can be used to make unique bloodless laser incisions, as well as “erase” unhealthy tissue without excessive loss of blood unavoidable in conventional scalpel surgery.
How do we Minimize blood?
As it cuts the seals small blood vessels. Reduced bleeding enables a new procedures which are not practical or even possible with a scalpel, such as tumors & lesions inside the throat, nose & mouth , some types of eye surgery, & nasal hyperkeratosis treatment.
Better visualization of the surgical site allows us to cut more precisely, avoiding unnecessary trauma to healthy surrounding tissues. In addition, some procedures do not require sutures
Excellent visibility provides another huge advantage of CO2 surgery! This allows us to complete the surgery faster.
Short procedures shorten anesthesia time & reduce the anesthesia risks. Finally, better visibility ensures better esthetic result.
How is it Less Painful ?
The CO2 beam seals nerve endings & lymphatics, resulting in less post-operative swelling & pain. The patient experiences a more comfortable post-operative recovery.
How does it reduce infection risk ?
Sanitizing effect is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam. It efficiently destroys microbe in its path (sanitizing effect). CO2 laser surgery is performed in a non-contact mode – the laser tip does not touch the target tissue during surgery, which minimizes risk of infection.
Why is it a faster recovery ?
Reduced risk of infection, less blood , less pain & swelling, less anesthesia time = speedy recovery after surgery = pets walk, eat, drink, or play much sooner than after conventional scalpel surgery.
