Laser surgery is a new innovation for pet care. When a dog or cat has a laser surgery procedure instead of traditional blade surgeries, they experience:
- Less pain
- Less bleeding
- Less swelling
For these reasons, laser surgery can be seen as a more humane method of doing pet operations.
The surgical laser is an instrument that uses a laser beam of focused light waves. This beam vaporizes tissue instead of cutting it. At the same time, it "seals" blood vessels and nerve cells. This process is called cauterization. Laser cauterization is one of the most effective ways of cauterizing.
At South Shore Veterinary Care in Kihei, we are proud to offer the only veterinary surgical unit on the island of Maui.
Laser surgery is especially effective for procedures such as spays, neuters, lump removals, ear surgery, nose surgery, and surgery of the mouth or gums.
