With the addition of radiowave technology to our surgical practice, we now have the ability to offer your pet shorter anesthesia and post-surgical healing times with certain surgical procedures.
Examples of Procedures:
- Tumor Removal
- Skin Tags Removal
- Ear Canal Polyp
How Does Radiowave Surgery Work?
A radiofrequency electrode tip becomes energized by radiowaves without become overly hot. The high frequency radiowaves provide specific and delicate tissue interaction. The result is a focused cutting and coagulating effect, which disintegrates and volatilizes single cells minimizing the amount of tissue damage. Healing is rapid and pain in minimized with less bleeding.
Distinct Benefits for Your Pet:
- Decreased Post-Operative Pain: Radiowave surgery causes minimal tissue damage and allows for enhanced precision when making incisions
- Decreased Post-Surgical Swelling: Increased precision compared to a blade and less heat than laser or electrosurgery = less tissue destruction and post-operative inflammation
- Reduced Risk of Infection: Radiowaves vaporize bacteria, minimizing infectious agents from being seeded along the length of the incision
- Quicker Recovery: With less tissue destruction, healing is hastened and your pet will recover quickly
- No Burning or Charring of the Tissue: Radiowave surgery does not burn the tissue, like laser or high temperature electrosurgery
Ask if your pet’s surgery can be done with radiowaves.
