Lasers have been used extensively in many different specialties of surgical medicine. We at Microcare Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital & Research Institute, Hyderabad, India also use lasers for ear, nose and throat problems quite extensively.
Laser Surgery in India is performed at very few ear, nose and throat hospitals in India. Laser technology has brought a new perspective to ENT microsurgery since the laser provides a very delicate touch and allows the surgeon to operate through small spaces to cut or coagulate tissue. Laser combines excellent cutting, ablation and coagulation properties for precise, virtually bloodless procedures. Lasersurgery is less invasive, has lower risk, minimal post-operative discomfort and the recovery times are shorter when compared to the conventional surgical methods.
Laser surgery is an operation performed with a beam of light rather than a traditional scalpel.Lasers can be used to make incisions or to remove tissue. A laser beam can operate delicate tissues as it can be focused on a particular area. Laser surgery includes bloodless removal of a surface lesion, such as a tumor. The laser beams are powerful enough to kill cancer cells. Laser surgery in India is cost effective and Microcare ENT Hospital & Research Institute is one of the top ENT Hospitalsin India performing laser surgeries.
