Laser Surgery

CT Animal Laser Surgery

We are proud to offer laser surgery as a progressive new option for our clients who want the safest and least painful treatments for their pets.

Long used in human health care, laser technology is a proven service with wide-range applications. Only recently have veterinarians turned to laser surgery, and we are proud to be on the leading edge of advanced animal care.

In many cases, laser surgery can be extremely beneficial over traditional surgery. Ask us if we deem laser surgery the best option for your pet.

 

The Benefits

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 us to only affect or remove the target tissue, leaving the healthy surrounding tissue untouched.

Reduce Risk of Infection
The high heat of laser energy kills bacteria and micro-organisms as it moves through diseased areas reducing the chance for infection.

Quick Recovery
For all of the above reasons, your pet is likely to feel less discomfort after surgery and return home to normal activities. How it Works:

A laser is an intense beam of light. Using an instrument that allows it to be precisely controlled, the laser beam replaces the traditional scalpel.

The laser energy instantly vaporizes the water found in tissues, allowing it to "cut" or essentially remove an extremely small area of tissue. This energy seals nerve endings and blood vessels as it moves through the tissue, resulting in less bleeding, less pain, and virtually no trauma to surrounding tissue.

 

Electro - Surgery

Electro-surgery is one of three types of surgical approaches that Beckett and Associates offers. This particular type of surgical procedure involves the tissue of the animal being cut by a high frequency electrical current. Often times, if your pet has a small mass or nodule that needs to be removed, this is how it is done. One great benefit of this type of surgery is that there is very minimal bleeding. This is because the blood vessels are sealed as the cut is made with the electrical current.

Using a pen-type device, this type of surgery is one that is convenient and comfortable for all our doctors. The small apparatus also makes the procedure very precise. The system is also very portable within the clinic, another great advantage of electro-surgery!
