Laser Surgery

Quicker Recovery for your pets

At Cupertino Animal Hospital, your pet’s health is as important to us as it is to you. We are pleased to provide laser surgery for soft tissue procedures.

Did you know? Cupertino Animal Hospital was the first veterinary practice in the Silicon Valley to introduce laser surgery. You can feel confident that your pet’s laser surgery is in experienced hands.

Why Veterinary laser surgery?

With soft tissue procedures, the laser provides a better alternative to the scalpel in traditional surgery.

Benefit: Less painful for your pet

The laser seals nerve endings as it "cuts." As a result, your pet will experience reduced trauma, less pain and be more comfortable post operatively.

Benefit: Less bleeding for your pet

The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery. This speeds many procedures, reducing the time your pet needs to be under anesthesia, which further reduces possible complications.

Benefit: Less swelling for your pet

The veterinary laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise tissue because the only thing that touches your pet is an invisible beam of light.

Benefit: Reduced risk of infection

As the laser removes diseased tissue, it seals the skin and reduces the amount of bacteria present.

Benefit: Precision

The laser can remove unhealthy tissue while minimizing adverse effects to healthy surrounding tissue.

Benefit: Quicker return to normal activities

Because there is less trauma, there is less post-operative discomfort and a better course of healing.

To find out if your pet’s procedure can benefit from laser surgery, call to speak with Dr. Kureshi or our staff (408) 252-6380.

FAQ’s - Laser Surgery

What is a laser?

A laser is a device that generates an intense beam of coherent light that can cut, seal or vaporize tissue.

Are lasers new?

Laser technology has been helping doctors to safely and effectively treat patients for more than 30 years. The technology is well proven and well documented, and it is now being adopted by veterinarians to provide better pet care.

How does a laser work?

The way a particular laser works is determined by the specific wavelength of light that it produces. For example, the most commonly used surgical laser is a CO2 laser which produces an invisible beam of light that vaporizes the water normally found in the skin and other soft tissue. Because the doctor can precisely control the laser, only a thin layer of tissue is removed, leaving the surrounding areas unaffected.

What type of procedures can a laser perform?

We do all soft tissue surgeries with laser. The laser is ideal for a wide variety of soft tissue procedures for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and pocket pets.
