surgeryLASER = Light amplification stimulated emission radiation

• LASER actually cuts with high intensity light.
• The advantage is that when it cuts the laser also seals the incision.
• It seals blood vessels, lymphatics and nerves. Thus there is little if any bleeding or fluid loss and considerably less pain with a laser incision.
• A laser incision is by its very nature sterile.
• Since the cut is with a tiny focused beam of light the laser can be extremely precise, this results in less tissue being removed when growths or cancers are removed.
• De-clawing of cats by normal surgery:
• requires a heavy tourniquet to control bleeding ( This can damage nerves)
• requires heavy bandaging to close the wound and prevent bleeding.
• Cats cannot walk normally for several days. ( older cats even longer)
• LASER eliminates the tourniquet and the post op bandaging. Cats are usually walking within hours of a LASER de-claw surgery
