Ford Road Animal Hospital offers the use of Laser for our surgical procedures. Instead of the traditional method of using a scalpel blade or scissors to make incisions, a Laser can be used. The benefit of Laser Surgery is that when an incision is made using the Laser, the incision is cauterized so there is little or no bleeding. Any time during surgery when blood loss is kept to a minimum; it is very positive to the overall recovery of your pet. Laser incisions also make the surgery site even more sterile so chances of infection are eliminated. While recovery time is the same for either the use of the scalpel blade or laser, recovery is less painful after using the laser.
Our Doctors and Technicians would be happy to discuss and answer any questions you may have regarding the benefits of Laser Surgery.
