We are one of the first clinics to provide LASER surgeries in the Richmond area. LASER stands for Light Amplifiation by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A LASER is a device which generates an intense beam of light. For more information about LASERS visit www.laserles.com.
LASERS can be used for a variety of procedures, including spay/neuter, claw removal, tumor removal and eye surgery. Dr. Hunter is trained to provide laser surgeries to animals.
There are several advantages of LASER technology, including:
Significant Decrease in Pain and Swelling - The LASER seals nerve endings, reducing post-operative pain.
Less Bleeding - The LASER shrinks small blood vessels, considerably reducing bleeding.
Reduces Infections - The LASER sterilizes as it lases and does not touch the tissue.
Decrease Anesthetic Time - The LASER allows many procedures to be done under local anesthesia and may reduce the use of general anesthesia.
