Laser surgery has been gaining in popularity in human medicine and dentistry over the past couple of decades. It has more recently been used in equine medicine. Some growths and sarcoids are suitable for laser removal, depending on site, suitability and severity. The laser is a fantastic tool for the removal of small tumours. Blood loss is minimal and the wounds heal quickly often without need for sutures or dressings. In many cases laser surgery can be carried out under standing sedation with local anaesthetic, offering an affordable, low risk solution for soft tissue surgery.
We have also used laser surgery in Bovine and Ovine patients. Tyloma, warts and growths can all be removed cleanly and with no blood loss, it really is a diverse method.
