In addition to traditional scalpel surgery, Yorkshire Veterinary Hospital offers the CO2 laser as a surgical option for your pet. Our practice has made this important investment in order to offer our clients and patients the best possible healthcare options. The CO2 laser can perform an array of surgical procedures. Some of these procedures include spays, neuters, and growth removals. The veterinarians at Yorkshire Veterinary Hospital will be able to tell you if your pet is a candidate for laser surgery and can help you determine if this is the best treatment choice for your fur baby. Dr. Scott Hamann, Dr. Corrina Hamann, Dr. Kelly Walsh, and Dr. Brad Bundy are well-versed in using the laser technology.
The CO2 laser is a device that produces an extremely powerful and concentrated beam of laser light that touches your pet, which minimizes pain, swelling, and bleeding often associated with surgery. The CO2 laser has the unique ability to vaporize tissue. It can be used to make incisions, as well as to erase unhealthy tissue. The laser is so precise that we can selectively remove just a few cells at a time. The laser seals nerve endings, so pets are more comfortable after surgery. Choosing the CO2 laser as a surgical option promotes quicker recovery, reduces pain and swelling, lessens bleeding, can reduce anesthesia time, and it sanitizes therefore reducing the risk of infection. Overall, this exceptional advancement in technology will provide our patients with a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
