C02 Laser  Surgery for Lumps in & can sometimes be performed with a local nerve block & WITHOUT general anesthesia  ! #lasersurgery​

ablation is so precise that it can selectively remove only a few tissue cells at a time, if needed. 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  unavoidable in conventional scalpel surgery. @aesculight_lasers

Minimized : As it cuts, the  beam seals small blood vessels. This reduction in bleeding enables a number of new surgical procedures which are not practical or even possible with a scalpel, such as tumors & lesions inside the throat &  some types of  surgery & nasal hyperkeratosis treatment. Better visualization of the surgical site allows the vet to cut more precisely, avoiding unnecessary trauma to healthy surrounding tissues. In addition, some procedures do not require sutures, when done with the .

Excellent visibility provides another huge advantage of CO2 surgery, i.e. the vet completes the surgery faster . Short procedures shorten anesthesia time & reduce the risks of anesthesia. In addition, some laser-assisted procedures can be performed in conjunction with others to save the patient time under anesthesia. Finally, better visibility ensures better esthetic result.

Less Pain: The CO2 beam seals nerve endings & lymphatics, resulting in less post-operative swelling & pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.

Reduced risk of infection: Sanitizing effect is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam. It efficiently destroys  in its path (sanitizing effect). Also, 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 even more.

Fast recovery time: Reduced risk of infection, less  pain & swelling, less time under anesthesia, allows for a speedy  recovery after surgery & pets walk, eat, drink, or play much sooner than after conventional scalpel surgery.@fetchdvm360
