In medicine, laser is used, in almost all surgical procedures, 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 to as “bloodless surgeries” as the heat generated by the laser seals off blood vessels and nerves, reducing bleeding, pain, swelling. It also keeps the surgical site free of germs and reduces the risk of infection. Laser procedures often take less time (and cost less money). The recovery period is also shorter.
Lasers provide a precise and bloodless method of operating on the delicate structures of the ear. They are especially useful in stapedectomies, otosclerosis and in removing inflamed tissue e.g. cholesteatoma. The safety of lasers in ear surgery is confirmed by experienced ear surgeons who have carried out 1000+ major ear surgeries.
