Laser Surgical Services
WIndmill Animal Hospital is proud to offer laser surgery as a 21st-century option for our clients who want the safest and least painful treatment for their pets.
How it Works - A surgical laser is an intense beam of light. Using an instrument that allows it to be precisely controlled, the laser beam replaces the traditional scalpel. Laser energy instantly vaporizes the water found in tissues, allowing it to "cut" or essentially remove an extremely small area of tissue.
Less Pain - the laser seals nerve endings as it moves through tissue. Your pet will feel less pain after surgery
Less Bleeding - the laser seals small blood vessels during surgery, resulting in less bleeding and quicker procedures.
Less Swelling - With laser technology, only light comes into contact with the tissue causing minimal swelling.
Extreme Precision - The laser enables your surgeon to only affect or remove the target tissue, leaving the healthy surrounding tissue untouched.
Reduced Risk of Infection - The high heat of laser energy kills bacteria and micro-organisms as it moves through diseased areas, reducing the chance of infection.
Quicker Recovery - For all of the above reasons, post-operative pain, swelling and bruising is reduced by 80%.
