This BBC special features a flexible fiber CO2 laser surgery on a sea turtle. Large skin tumors caused by fibroma pillomatosis are excised with the laser beam. The video highlights the key points of the CO2 laser surgery, such as non-contact cutting (to prevent contaminating the wound) and excellent hemostasis.
