Corsicana Veterinary Clinic is the only veterinary facility in Navarro County to offer laser surgery. The CO2 laser is one of the latest innovations available in veterinary medicine. Majority of veterinarians continue to use the traditional scalpel blade, but here at Corsicana Veterinary Clinic, we have replaced the scalpel with the laser for majority of surgical procedures due to the benefits it provides to both the patients and the surgeon.
Clinical Benefits of Laser Surgery
The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings as it cuts through tissue. This reduces the amount of pain the patient feels during and after surgery.
The CO2 laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it cuts. This laser energy achieves hemostasis and provides the surgeon with a bloodless surgical field in most procedures.
There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical region, eliminating the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional surgical methods. Lymphatic vessels are also sealed.
Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively eliminating microorganisms.
As a result of all of the above, laser surgery provides a quicker recovery for your pet.
Laser surgeries are especially beneficial for declawing cats, oral surgeries, soft tissue mass removals and even spays and neuters.
