Laser Surgery & Cold Laser Therapy for Pets

surgery

Laser technology has been an extraordinary advancement for veterinary medicine. At Maywood Veterinary Clinic, we use the newest laser technologies in two very important areas: surgery and pain management.

Laser Surgery

Laser surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery techniques. Lasers replace scalpels in these procedures, offering many benefits to both the patient and the surgeon.

Surgical laser procedures result in less pain, bleeding, and swelling. The sterilizing effect of the laser dramatically reduces the risk of infection, as well. All of these result in less post-operative discomfort for the patient. We know that controlling pain in patients helps accelerate recovery and it is a more humane approach to veterinary care.

Laser surgery is advantageous in addressing a wide range of veterinary conditions in all types of species. Examples used often at our clinic include spay and neuter surgery; cyst, tumor, and wart removal; and declaw surgery.

Laser Therapy

The Companion Therapy Laser provides a sterile, pain-free, surgery- free, drug-free pain management treatment. It is designed to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, and dermatological problems in many species.

Laser therapy is the only course of treatment that actually stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This increased circulation, an anti-inflammatory reaction, offers relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.

This treatment modality is useful for both acute pain, such as during recovery from a surgical procedure, and long-term suffering from chronic conditions, such as arthritis. Whether rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your animal companion can benefit from this revolutionary new approach to pain management.

If your pet is suffering from such concerns, contact our clinic for a consultation.
