Endoscopic Laser Surgery

Endoscopic Laser Surgery

MINIMALLY INVASIVE LASER SURGERY

Endoscopic laser surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a specialized instrument called an endoscope and laser technology to diagnose and treat various medical conditions. 

How it Works

An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera attached to its tip. It allows the surgeon to see inside the body without the need for large incisions. 

 

In endoscopic laser surgery, a laser beam is delivered through a fiber optic cable and directed through the endoscope. The laser can be precisely controlled and focused on the target tissue.

Advantages

Endoscopic laser surgery has a number of advantages over traditional open surgery, including:

  • Smaller incisions/minimally invasive

  • Less pain

  • Less bleeding

  • Shorter hospital stays

  • Faster recovery time
