Laser Surgery Treatment

Laser surgery is a type of surgery that uses special light beams instead of instruments for surgical procedures. There are many indications for the use of lasers in surgery. The following are some of the more common indications:

  • To remove tumors
  • To help prevent blood loss by sealing small blood vessels
  • To seal lymph vessels to help decrease swelling and decrease the spread of tumor cells
  • To treat some skin conditions, including to remove or improve warts, moles, tattoos, birthmarks, scars, and wrinkles.
