In medicine, Lasers is used, in almost any surgical procedure, to allow surgeons to work at high levels of precision by focusing on a small area, damaging less of the surrounding tissue. Laser surgeries are often referred as“bloodless surgery”, the heat generated by the laser seal off blood vessels and nerves reducing bleeding, pain, swelling, keeps the surgical site free of germs and reduces the risk of infection. Laser procedures often take less time (and cost less money) and shorter length recovery period.
Lasers provide a precise and bloodless method of operating on the delicate structures of the ear. Lasers are especially useful in stapedectomies, otosclerosis and in removing inflamed tissue e.g. cholesteatoma. The safety of lasers in ear surgery over 1,000 major ear operations is confirmed by experience ear surgeons.
