Laser Surgery at Allegheny Veterinary Services in Elkins, WV

Offering CO2 Laser Surgery for Less Pain, Bleeding, Swelling, and Infection

Allegheny Veterinary Services proudly offers advanced laser surgery for our patients undergoing elective and non-elective surgical procedures. There are many advantages to using the CO2 laser for your pet’s procedure, including:

  • Decreased Pain
  • Decreased Bleeding
  • Decreased Inflammation
  • Decreased Chance of Infection
  • Instant Sterilization

Our veterinary surgeons routinely use the CO2 laser for spay and neuter procedures, delicate operations on mucous membranes, including the eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as more complicated procedures like mass removals. Laser surgery dramatically reduces the likelihood of spreading cancer when compared to traditional scalpel surgery. Some of the most common procedures that we use the laser for include:

  • Skin Tumor Removal
  • Spay
  • Neuter
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Entropion/Ectropion Correction
  • Mouth Surgery
  • Throat Surgery
  • Cancerous Tumor Removal & Resection
  • Mass Removal
  • Perianal & Rectal Surgery

Exceptional Surgical Precision, Effectiveness & Fast Healing

Lasers can be used for any surgical procedure that is performed on the skin or soft tissues of the body. The precision of laser surgery enables the surgeon to achieve an exceptional degree of surgical accuracy and effectiveness. As the laser moves across the area, the nerve endings, lymphatics, and blood vessels are sealed. Due to the high heat involved, any pathogens in the area are destroyed, which dramatically eliminates the probability of infection. Compared to traditional surgery, recovery time and collateral damage to surrounding areas is greatly reduced following laser surgery.
