Due to high vascularity, good visualization during a surgical procedure can be difficult. The CO2 laser provides very good and safe hemostasis during this type of procedure. Combined with other benefits (such as reduced inflammation and postoperative pain among others), the laser is a great tool, allowing both surgeon and patient to benefit.
In this interview, Dr. Kaczmarek talks about his professional journey from the moment he first picked up the laser, to the time he taught laser surgery to his fellow surgeons across Europe and the U.S. through numerous presentations and wet labs.

Although not as often as in the past, cats still develop urinary obstruction and urethrostomy is necessary. During a conventional scalpel procedure, visualization may be compromised due to hemorrhage from several areas. Therefore, in our clinic, we utilize our Aesculight CO2 laser for this procedure.
