Can diode lasers be used in surgery?
Of course, surgical diode lasers are suitable for different surgical applications.
Why use the diode laser in surgery?
The growing success of laser surgery is related to its particular ability to selectively and microscopically photocoagulate tissues without any electrical contact with the patient.
In pulsed emission, the diode laser vaporizes benign superficial lesions without anaesthesia or stitches.
It is used like a "scalpel" to completely remove questionable lesions for a mandatory histological exam. The surgical field is bloodless and sterile for the immediate coagulation of the haemolymph vessels; the remaining micro-burn is painless, so recovery is short with better aesthetic-functional healing.
In which surgical fields is the laser used?
The surgical applications are well known and are now irreplaceable in: ophthalmology, neurosurgery, otorhinolaryngology, gynaecology, orthopedics, dermatology, vascular, general surgery, plastic surgery, urology, endoscopy and oncology.
