An argon laser is a device that uses argon gas to produce a stream of light characterized by a wavelength absorbed specifically by pigments like melanin and hemoglobin, and passes without harm through many other substances such as fluids. Argon laser therapy utilizes this therapy to treat a number of GI conditions including dysphagia, mucosal lesions, hemorrhages, and strictures. If you are looking into argon laser therapy in Phoenix, AZ, our team can help.

Laser therapies, typically, are more precise relative to other methods, which means the treatment better targets the damaged or problematic tissue. Surgical cuts can be made shorter and shallower and result in less overall tissue trauma. People typically tend to experience a faster recovery following laser surgeries than from traditional surgery.

Is argon laser therapy safe?

As in any operation, there are risks. However, because of the focused nature of laser therapy, it is often considered less risky relative to other surgical procedures. A partial list of the possible risks include reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection and pain. Your safety is of the utmost importance to the GI doctors at Arizona Digestive Health.

EAST VALLEY GASTRO- Dr Panossian: The most caring physician I have seen in years. Not that the others have been bad, he is just several notches above. He is very upbeat, great bedside manner with exceptional communication. Took his time and seemed to really care to find the cause of my belly pain- even suggesting possibilities outside of his scope of practice. He's definitely one of the good ones. I'd recommend him to anyone!
