Richmond Hill Animal Hospital now employs Aesculight Laser Surgery, one of the most up-to-date technological advances in veterinary surgery today.
Using pet laser surgery, Dr. Kadri can perform a wide variety of surgical procedures on cats, dogs, birds and other pets. The laser allows veterinarians to be so precise that they can selectively remove only a few cells at a time without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
Laser surgery has brought many benefits to the medical world, and pets are benefiting from it too. Surgical lasers can be used in place of steel scalpels in multiple procedures in general surgery, dermatology, ophthalmic, hard and soft tissue surgery.
How it Works
As the laser beam cuts it seals off blood vessels, which greatly reduces bleeding during surgery. It also seals off nerve endings so your pet will be much more comfortable after the procedure than with regular surgery performed using a scalpel. The laser beam kills any bacteria in its path, greatly reducing the risk of postoperative infections. Utilizing vet laser surgery is just another way that we show how much we care about your pet’s health, safety and comfort.
What having laser surgery means for your pet:
- Less pain
- Less bleeding
- Less infection
- Less swelling and discomfort
