We have advanced surgical sterilization techniques and intensive post-surgical care and pain management within our ICU ward. All patients receive a full pre-surgical physical exam and pre-anesthetic blood work to allow our doctors to choose anesthetics specifically tailored to your pet. In doing so, our patient’s risk for complication while undergoing anesthesia can be minimized.
Radiowave Surgery: A better alternative for your pet
How does Radiowave Surgery work?:
A radiofrequency electrode tip becomes energized by the radiowaves but does not become overly hot. The high frequency radiowaves provide specific and delicate tissue interaction. This results in a focused cutting and coagulating effect, which disintegrates and volatilizes single cells minimizing the amount of tissue destruction. Healing is rapid and pain is minimized with less risk of infection and less bleeding.
Why is Radiowave Surgery Safe?
Skin contact is not required between the neutral plate and the patient, minimizing the possibility of burns and shocks*. There is no risk of accidentally burning other areas of tissue through reflection or penetration of a light beam, as with a laser. Radiowave surgery provides a tactile incision requiring minimal pressure, which allows the doctor to sense what he is cutting. Radiowave energy is low temperature, minimizing the occurrence of tissue necrosis and burning.
Distinct Benefits for Your Pet
• Decreased Post-Operative Pain
Radiowave surgery causes minimal
• Decreased Post-Surgical Swelling
Low temperature = less tissue destruction
• 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
• Safer Than Laser & Electrocautery
There are minimal safety precautions involved
with radiowave technology
• Reduced Risk of Burning or Charring
of the Tissue
Radiowave surgery does not burn the tissue,
like laser or high temperature electrosurgery
