Benefits of DiodeVET; Laser Surgery
When making an incision, DiodeVET laser beam cauterizes and seals blood vessels up to 1mm in diameter. The laser energy facilitates hemostasis and provides the surgeon with a virtually bloodless surgical field.
DiodeVET laser energy acts as an antimicrobial/anti-bacterial agent by producing high temperatures. As the laser beam penetrates the incision site, the high surface temperature effectively eliminates existing microorganisms, resulting in a sterile surgical environment.
The DiodeVET laser beam seals nerve endings along with servered nerves as it incises through tissue. This ultimately reduces the amount of pain that an animal feels during and after surgery.
Physical contact between the laser and the surgical region is never established with DiodeVET laser technology. The 980nm beam of infrared light penetrates the tissue via the ablation/vaporization of cells and thoroughly seals the lymphatic vessels within the surgical field. Because the crushing, tearing and bruising of tissue associated traditional surgical methods does not occur with laser surgery, there is a decrease in the post-operative inflammation of incisions.
Extreme Surgical Precision:
DiodeVET laser produces a highly monochromatic, coherent beam of light that is accurately delivered to a point of focus. The accuracy of this focused beam of energy allow for the vaporization of cells while causing minimal damage to the adjacent healthy surrounding tissues.
Laser surgery results in quick wound healing, lack of inflammation, reduced post-operative pain, and quick in-patient turnover rates. Clients appreciate the reduction and discomfort their pets experience after laser surgery. Pets are able to resume their normal activities much quicker than with conventional surgical methods.
" The diode laser is the most cost effective and efficient wavelength for endoscopic surgery
in horses. Contact incision-excision is the forte of the 25W unit. Examples of applicable
procedures are epiglottic entrapment, ventriculocordectomy, soft palate scarification and

" 980 nm Diode laser energy is a perfect companion wavelength intraoperatively
with CO2 laser energy. The 980 wavelength Diode laser allows for superior
coagulation and cauterization especially in highly vascular tissues. Surgical
field visualization and the need for time consuming ligations is dramatically
