We provide many surgical services at Cumberland Veterinary Hospital including routine spay and neuters, soft-tissue surgeries and orthopedic surgeries. Occasionally, we refer our patients to specialists (board certified veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations.
Laser Surgery is an option we offer at our hospital. It is a progressive new technology that allows for the safest and least painful surgical treatments for pets.A laser is a precisely controlled, intense beam of light. The energy in the light instantly vaporizes water found in tissues which allows it to “cut” or essentially remove a small area of tissue. The laser energy seals nerve endings and blood vessels resulting in less bleeding and virtually no trauma to surrounding tissues.
There are many benefits to choosing Laser Surgery.
Less Pain: The laser seals nerve endings as it moves through tissues. 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 in contact with the tissue, causing minimal swelling.
Extreme Precision: The laser enables your surgeon to only affect or remove the target tissue, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue untouched.
Reduced Risk of Infection: 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 the above reasons your pet is likely to feel less discomfort after surgery, and return home to normal activities.
We strongly recommend Laser Surgery for the following procedures:
Ovariohysterectomy – Spay
Orchidectomy – Neuter
Soft Palate Procedures
