In the hands of a skilled veterinarian, diode laser energy can be applied superficially, as well as in open and endoscopic surgery. Thin flexible fibers deliver required amounts of energy into the body in a minimally-invasive technique. With laser surgery, both cutting and coagulation are performed in a single step reducing bleeding, less pain, faster healing and quicker recovery.
Our veterinarians have used the J-Ray Class 4 Laser in surgery with amazing results! Using the proper techniques for diode laser surgery, the delivery of laser energy can be enhanced by conditioning or charring the tip of the fiber. The tip of the fiber is charred by activating the laser with the tip of the fiber in contact with a sterilized tongue depressor that has been marked with a black permanent marker. This results in the tip of the fiber being coated with a thin layer of carbon.
