Who We Are
Aesculight, a division of LightScalpel LLC based near Seattle, Washington, designs and manufactures CO2 surgical lasers for veterinary applications. Our products are distributed Worldwide. Since 2006, Aesculight has been the only North American based veterinary CO2 laser manufacturer.
Aesculight’s founders, Paul Diaz and Peter Vitruk, both former principals at laser manufacturer Luxar Corporation, were intimately involved in the design and manufacture of that company’s line of CO2 surgical lasers, Paul as Luxar’s Director of Engineering, and Peter as Luxar’s Senior/Chief Scientist. In 2002, Luxar Corporation was acquired and then dissolved by Lumenis, Paul and Peter went on to found Aesculight’s original parent company, LuxarCare LLC. Starting in Peter’s garage and working with nothing more than extensive knowledge, they provided repair services, support, and accessories to thousands of Luxar and *Accuvet™ laser owners who were left without repair and maintenance options after the dissolution of Luxar.
Built on Superior Customer Service
The company was founded and built from a drive to provide a superior customer experience focusing on quality service, low cost and efficient turnaround times. In 2005, gathering together many talented and experienced former Luxar laser engineers as well as other industry experts, Paul and Peter took on the challenge of designing and building the next generation of CO2 surgical lasers and created the Aesculight brand. The results are the products you see on these web pages, a new line of CO2 surgical lasers with improved beam delivery, higher power, new patented laser tube technology, and updated control and display features. Aesculight continues to focus on LuxarCare’s founding principles of exceptional customer service and technical support.
Intense focus is placed on finding the best, most talented and dedicated people to carry Peter and Paul’s vision forward. We are privileged to work with many surgical laser consultants and luminaries in a number of veterinary specialties. Our close cooperation with the brightest minds in surgical laser medicine allows our engineers and scientists to develop the best surgical laser devices, tools and accessories. Many of our surgical laser consultants have performed thousands of laser installations and laser training sessions across the United States and Canada, first with Luxar Corporation and now with the Aesculight, LuxarCare and LightScalpel brands.
The Aesculight Surgical Laser and LuxarCare brands as well as their parent company LightScalpel LLC are a private “family owned” company and the fastest growing designer and manufacturer of CO2 surgical laser technology for physicians and veterinarians. Aesculight is the ONLY North American based manufacturer of veterinary surgical CO2 lasers.
