Suffolk Veterinary Group Laser Surgery Center

Human surgeons have been using surgical lasers in their practices for a long time.  Everything from vision improvement and cosmetic surgery, to complex surgical cases now include lasers as a standard part of their procedure.  It is widely recognized in human medicine that using lasers as a part of surgical technique greatly enhances prognosis, reduces hospitalization times, decreases healing times, and reduces pain.

 

The Suffolk Veterinary Group Laser Surgery Center has been proud to offer the same benefits to your pet since 2010.  We were the first general veterinary clinic in Eastern Suffolk to do so, and have done well over 500 procedures that have utilized laser surgery techniques since then.  Because we believe strongly that our patients deserve the best care we can provide, we consider the use of laser surgical techniques to be the best choice in making your pet's surgery as stress-free an experience as possible.

 

Dr. Winkler is a professional member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, and is a Diplomate of The American Board of Laser Surgery.  Dr. Winkler is the first, and currently only, veterinarian on Long Island to hold this certification in laser medicine, and is one of only six Veterinarians in the world to have completed the American Board of Laser Surgery's qualifications.

 

Less Pain

The laser beam seals nerve endings as it vaporizes through tissue. This reduces the amount of pain your pet will feel during and after surgery.  Suffolk Veterinary Group Animal Wellness & Laser Surgery Center also practices multi-modal pain management for all our surgical patients so that they experience as little pain as possible before, during, and after their procedure.

 

Less Bleeding

The laser beam cauterizes and seals small blood vessels as it vaporizes. This laser energy achieves hemostasis, and cauterized blood vessels are less likely to re-open after a surgical procedure, and heal faster.

 

Less Swelling

There is no physical contact between the laser and the surgical region, eliminating the tearing and bruising of tissue associated with traditional scalpel surgical methods. Lymphatic vessels are also sealed.  This also helps reduce the pain associated with surgical sites and decreases the chance of additional bleeding.


Less Infection

Laser energy acts as an antibacterial agent by producing high temperatures, effectively eliminating microorganisms at the surgical site.  Aseptic surgical techniques, sterile fields created by a gowned and masked surgical team, an aseptically scrubbed surgical suite and equipment, and completely individualized and autoclaved sterile surgical trays also protect your pet from infection while they are undergoing a surgical procedure.

 

Faster Recovery

As a result of all of the above, laser surgery provides the benefit of a quicker recovery for your pet.  A majority of our surgical procedures are done on an out-patient basis, so your pet can be with you in the comforts of their own home on the same day.

Testimonial

I want to thank Dr. Winkler and his staff. They are the most compassionate animal care center ever. And when we recently had to put our kitty down, no where else will you receive the compassion they show. God bless them for their kindness and caring hearts.
