What is argon laser therapy?
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. To learn more about this laser therapy, reach out to the GI specialists at Arizona Digestive Health to book an appointment.
What are the benefits of argon laser therapy?
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. Discuss with our practice to discover more regarding how our procedures protect your safety while providing you with effective treatment.
