Lasers emit light beams that can be focused on a very small area and the converted heat affects the cells in the area being treated until they "burst." Laser surgery uses this light to remove diseased tissues.There are several types of lasers, each having a specific use. The color of the light beam emitted by each laser is directly related to the type of surgery being performed and the color of the tissue of the area being treated.
Having two of the latest technologies in laser surgery, most of our surgeries only require local anesthesia and often have minimal downtime, less discomfort and a faster recovery time.
Given our advanced technology, we are able to perform some surgeries without hospitalization, at our clinic. However, we judge each case separately, and while we may perform the surgery for one patient in-house, we may require another patient to have it at one of the many reputable, established hospitals that we have a working relationship with. For more information in regards to surgeries performed by Dr. Taghaddos offsite at a hospital, such as Appendicitis and Hernia, please contact our offices.
- Anal fistula
An anal fistula is an infected cavity found near the anus or rectum and is filled with pus. Laser surgery is a great option to treat this problem.
- Anal fissure
An anal fissure is a break or tear in the skin of the anal canal. Using laser surgery, we are able to repair the damage effectively.
Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the anus and anal rectum. Using laser surgery, it is possible to treat these painful veins effectively and with minimal downtime.
Pilonidal Sinus (Hair Cyst)
A Pilonidal Cyst is an abscess located at the lower back, and is sometimes accompanied by bleeding and flushed pus secretion. Through the use of the latest technological advancements in Laser surgery, our patients are usually able to return their daily routines shortly after surgery.
Circumcision (Adults & Children)
Same day surgery can be performed using local anesthesia for both children and adults.
Frequently, a breast biopsy can help determine the final diagnosis. This procedure is usually done by local anesthesia and does not require hospitalization, resulting in fewer scars.
Synovial Cysts (Joint Cyst)
In most cases, Synovial Cysts can be removed with minor laser surgery.
Ingrown Nail Treatment
Ingrown nail treatment can be performed under local anesthesia without hospitalization to prevent serious problems from occurring.
Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix; this is a 3 and 1/2 inch-long tube of tissue extending from the large intestine. While no one is quite sure of the cause of the inflammation, it is a medical emergency and requires immediate attention.
Vascular Lesion Treatment
In some cases laser therapy can treat some kinds of vascular lesions.
