Radiosurgery is a state-of-the-art surgical method which allows our surgeons to make incisions through skin and into other tissues without the use of a scalpel blade!
By utilizing the energy produced by very specific radio wave frequencies and focusing that energy with controlled precision, a very specific incision can be made without causing significant damage to surrounding tissue. Radiosurgery does not burn the tissue as can occur with laser or high temperature electrosurgery. At the same time, radiosurgery helps control hematostasis (bleeding) of small vessels in order to minimize any blood loss.
The Benefits to your pet can include:
- Decreased post-operative pain
- Decreased post-surgical edema
- Better hemostatic control (less bleeding)
- Reduced risk of infection
- Quicker recovery
With shorter anesthesia and post-surgical healing times, ask if your pet's surgery can be done with radio waves!
