It was a big dose of surprise earlier when laser found its way to science of medicine. No one ever thought that these tools of light would be powerful tool for surgical practices. Numerous earlier experimenters showed that there are surgical operations difficult to perform with the conventional scalpel and that a laser beam might be used instead. Health establishment soon realized its superiority over traditional methods. And this alternative treatment started to gain its popularity, multiplying its usage in several clinical conditions. And the advantages of laser surgery quickly became apparent in several medical condition like Hemorrhoids and Fistula, Varicose Veins and many others.
Here’s below the most evident 13 of them…
- The focused narrow Precisely focused light beam helps you to cut through human tissue better then scalpel plus the beam creates a very high-intensity light, helping you to target accurately on tiny areas, for very precise surgical work.
- Lesser Treatment Time & Faster Recovery :– EVLA take less than an hour. You (and your patient) save tremendous time. Recovery is excellent. The patient can walk post treatment and resume his normal activity soon. Lesser collateral damage to neighboring tissues helps recovery fast.
- Laser beam seals off the small blood open blood vessels as it moves along. To seal of of large larger blood vessels you may still need conventional methods.
- Sealing of blood vessels and nerves reduces bleeding, swelling, scarring, pain, and the length of the recovery period.
- You need lesser operating time because the precision of laser allows for a smaller incision.
- Consistent light beam, gives off the same amount of energy from one second to the next. This prevents you from accidently making a deeper incision with scalpel.
- Heat produced by laser sterilizes the surgical site
- Laser bean doesn’t damage the surrounding tissue, skin or organ as human tissue do not conduct heat very well.
- Minimally invasive procedure therefore less bleeding and lesser scar.
- The heat generated by the laser keeps the surgical site free of germs and reduces the risk of infection.
- Because a smaller incision is required, laser procedures often take less time than traditional surgery.
- Laser surgery uses non-ionizing radiation, so it does not have the same long-term risks as x-rays or other types of ionizing radiation.
- Can be often done on outpatient basis. Patient won’t have to stay longer in hospitals.
