Post Hospitalisation Care
Did you know?
/ Laser surgery
Here are some advatages of laser surgery compared to traditional surgery.
As the incision is made, the laser cauterizes and seals the small blood resells by a process called photo coagulation. This greatly reduces the risk of hemorrhaging and/or loss of blood. It also facilitates the surgeon’s task since the bleeding does not hide any structures. For most surgeries, the operating and anesthetic times are significantly reduces, which reduces any risks related to the anesthesia.
With its energy, the laser has an antimicrobial effect. The high temperature it generates as it penetrates the tissues kill the bacteria present on the skin where the incision is made. The risks of post- operative complications are therefore greatly reduced.
The high temperature generated by the laser seals the nerve endings, which as a result dismisses greatly post-operative pain. This, in turn decreases recovery time. What a relief for the pet and his owner!
The laser seals the lymphatic vessels responsible for post-operative edema. Edema is an accumulation of liquid within the different layers of the wound. This can cause infections as well as rupture in the stitches. In addition, edema is a source of discomfort for the patient. Laser surgery greatly reduces these risks, which increases the security of the surgery. Your pet will feel much better!
Extreme precision of the surgery:
The laser is very precise. A perfect incision prevents damage to the surrounding tissues. In addition, our lasers are equipped with the super pulse mode, which is an extremely rapid pulse resembling that of a continuous beam, but that avoids overheating the tissues. This is very useful for surgeries where the tissues are very sensitive to heat.
The most interesting aspects of this technology for the client are the significant decreases in recovery time and post-operative complications. Also, it is reassuring for our clients to know that this method increases the safety of the procedure. It is for these reasons that we use surgical lasers. We have a complete line of lasers including a CO2 nova pulse and a Diode k-laser.
