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.

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.

Dr. Drewitz is the best. He is kind, caring and very easy to talk to. He takes time to listen and does not make an appointment feel rushed. The office staff has also been great.

I just had my 5th colonoscopy and cannot say enough good things about East Valley Gastroenterology and East Valley Endoscopy! Doctor Panossian is an excellent physician and ALL of both company’s staff are warm, caring and professional. From the initial consultation to waving goodbye after the procedure they were a model of efficiency and team collaboration – it was like watching an Indy 500 pit crew in action!
