WHY CHOSE LASER? The answer is simple. Patients that have laser surgery experience dramatically less pain than with conventional surgery. CO2 lasers seal the nerve endings. Without the “raw” severed nerve, the patient feels little pain or discomfort. These patients also have very little bleeding or swelling. With laser surgery, there is also no tearing of the tissue. Without the usual trauma of conventional surgery there is minimal bruising and inflammation. Therefore, most patients have a speedier recovery allowing pets and their loved ones to be home together sooner.
