If you are looking into argon laser therapy in Thibodaux, LA, our team can help.

Laser therapies provide greater precision than alternative procedures by targeting the diseased or damaged tissues specifically. Surgical cuts are made smaller and more superficially and create less cumulative trauma to the tissue. Patients generally tend to benefit from more expedited recovery following laser treatments than what is expected from more traditional surgery.

 

Is argon laser therapy safe?

As with any medical operation, there are risks involved. Still, due to the focused nature of laser therapy, it is typically thought to be less risky compared to alternate surgical procedures. A partial list of the potential risks can include pain, reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, and infection. Your health is the primary concern of the GI specialists at Digestive Health Center. Talk with our practice to discover more about how our procedures keep you safe while making sure you receive reliable treatment.
